Starfish Beach Art 🌊

beach Jan 03, 2024

I found a beautiful dusty rose starfish ornament at Hobby Lobby and I'm creating a beach art piece with lots of shells, driftwood, glass, and seed beads. This one has no tracer and minimal painting (just the background!), so you can easily recreate this and use whatever you have in your stash! 

We are working with an 8x16 canvas. Start by painting your background with white paint. Next, I am going to blend in some Cactus Flower pink paint. Use your brush flat and apply the color from side to side. Dry with a heat tool.

I will use the flat side of my paintbrush and apply more white paint on top, just lightly swiping the brush from side to side to create more dimension. Dry again.

Now, let's add all of our glass and goodies! I am going to add about half of a bag of Rose Gold glass. I'll situate my starfish towards the right side of my canvas in the glass. I'll fill in any spots with Starfire glass. Then, I'll arrange my shells, piece of driftwood, and a few pearl beads among my glass too.

We're going to elevate our canvas using blocks. Mix 2 ounces of resin and stir gently for three minutes. Pour the resin onto your glass and spread it onto your canvas using your gloved fingers or brush.

Use a heat gun to pop your bubbles. Keep your heat moving at all times! Then, I'll sprinkle on some glass bubbles and Burgundy Dream assorted beads.
