Star Spangled Flag πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ


We're creating a sparkling flag on a 4x12 canvas, perfect for beginners. It's easy to follow along - we'll use a palette knife technique to paint the stripes, then add some sparkle with plastic stars, glass, and a glossy resin finish. This project is the perfect way to celebrate summer and add a touch of patriotism to your home!

First, I'm going to paint a square on the left side of my canvas with Midnight Blue paint. Make sure you paint the side of the canvas as well. Dry with a heat tool.

Next, we will work on the stripes! I am going to scoop up some white acrylic paint with the back of my palette knife and swipe the color onto my stripes. This will not be perfect and will have a very natural and abstract look to it! I'll use this same technique to paint my red stripes. While the paint is still wet, use your palette knife to blend the colors of the stripes together more. I'll also add some Midnight Blue in the stripes. 

Then, I'll add another coat of Midnight Blue to my square using my palette knife. While its wet, I will blend in some white paint and red paint with my palette knife. Dry with a heat tool.

I'll use a paintbrush to add red paint to the edges of my canvas. I'll also blend in some white paint. Finally, I'll use the edge of my palette knife to add gold acyrlic paint throughout my flag. Dry with a heat tool.

Mix 1 ounce of resin and stir gently for three minutes. Pour the resin onto your canvas and spread it using your gloved fingers or brush. I'm going to start by just adding resn to the blue area of my canvas and then add my blue plastic stars on top. Drizzle more resin on top.

Next, add Starfire glass to your white stripes. Then, drizzle resin on top and spread it throughout the rest of your canvas. 

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