    Abstract Backgrounds with Airbrush Acrylics

    “I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.”
    Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

    Have you painted with chopsticks? So easy and fun. Check out this 3 1/2 minute video.

    Find more pages painted with a chopstick in this altered book.

    This is the book I'm altering, with golden airbrush colors (aka airbrush acrylics)

    Awesome!!! A dreary rainy day made sunnier by Daisy yellow! Our house loves Sushi so lots of chopsticks we have to play with. Thanks as always!

    LOVE it! Looks like such a fun way to paint! Must try as soon as I get a chance!

    Would this work with thinned acrylics? No airbrush paint here.

    wow! i love that, it looks so fun. i love marbled paint and this sort of gives that look. also wondering if another medium would work. airbrush paints are not in my budget.

    {Tammy}: All: I think it would work fine with thinned fluid acrylics {fluid acrylics with fluid matte medium). The result would be less opaque and you might have to wipe the chopstick every so often as you work. The fluid acrylics dry a little faster than the airbrush acrylics.

    Thanks Tammy. I will try with the acrylics and matte medium as soon as I get the sewing project off my table.
