Shamrock ☘️

st. patrick's day Mar 08, 2023

We are using a 6x6 canvas today to create a St. Patrick's Day themed shamrock art piece. This one is super easy and festive for the upcoming holiday! All you'll need is a handful of paint colors and some Starfire glass. 

First, add a coat of white paint to your background. Let dry or dry with a heat gun. Then, I'm adding Grass Green and a little bit of Delta Straw (yellow) to my background. 

Grab your tracer, tape it to the canvas, place transfer paper underneath, and trace your shamrock with a stylus onto the canvas. 

Paint your shamrock with a Kelly Green color. I'll do one coat of Kelly Green and then I'm adding a coat of Metallic Emerald paint. Then, I'll add a little bit of Metallic White - just a few strokes of color to highlight. Let dry or dry with a heat gun.

I'll paint some white dots on my shamrock - I'll do two coats so we have more coverage. I'll also add a bit of yellow paint to them too. Then, use a dotting tool to make some smaller white dots too.

Take your black graphic pen and make some little swirlies in the larger white dots. 

Next, I'll take a DecoColor Premium Metallic Pen Gold to outline my shamrock. Then, I'll take some Metallic Gold paint and a sponge brush and add some to my canvas edges. 

Now, we are going to add glass! I'm going to add a handful of Starfire glass to my shamrock. 

Next, we will add resin. We're going to elevate our canvas using blocks. Mix 1/2 ounce of resin and stir gently for three minutes. Then, drizzle over your glass. Pour the remainder of the resin onto your canvas and spread it using your gloved fingers or brush.

Use a heat gun to pop your bubbles. Keep your heat moving at all times!
