If you like artwork that makes you look twice yet truly complements a room you will enjoy making this inspirational rainbow creation.
All you need is a:
- Sheet of paper
- 5 chalkola chalk markers (Choose 4 colors that you like and one black marker.)
- A picture frame with glass in it
- Something with which to scrape color off the glass.
On a clean sheet of paper use one of your markers to make a square or a circle. Repeat across the width of the paper, about nine rows, and down the length of the paper for four rows.
Repeat with another color marker so that the second color is beneath and touching the first until you have four colors in each column across and down the paper.
Keep in mind that you will be stacking different colors in columns. You’ll have nine columns across the paper and four columns down the paper. Don’t align them perfectly; the idea is to use these columns of color to cover as much of the paper as possible. Stagger your rows so that no one column of color is directly above another.
Now that you have a paper full of colors, mount it in the frame and secure the back so the paper stays in place.
Prepare your black chalk marker and color the glass black.
If your frame has a matte, which some people prefer, tape around the matte so that the black marker on the glass doesn’t obscure any part of it.
Once it dries completely you can use your scraper.
Scrape off the black marker to form of letters and/or shapes to reveal the rainbow of colors underneath.
This creative method of making art is fun, relaxing, and when you’re finished you’ll have something beautiful to enjoy. Also read - When are Liquid Chalk Markers Permanent?
