Use these tips to accent your beach scene, walk through the park or Chicago skyline. In under a minute, you'll be painting perfect fluffy clouds at your next paint and sip party.
Please, please, please... pay close attention to Step 3. It's a step you don't want to miss. Let's get started with our step by step instructions!
Step 1: Find your canvas and a flat tip paint brush.
Step 2: Place some white and blue acrylic paint on a palette (a paper plate will do just fine).
Step 3: Wine! Most important... DO NOT forget to pour yourself a glass. You deserve it!
Step 4: Start with a dark blue sky. Paint the entire background blue. Be generous with your paint. The sky MUST still be wet when you start your clouds.
Step 5: Dab the end of your flat tip paint brush into the white paint and use short brush strokes to paint arched tops of clouds.
Cluster them. Think a pile of cotton balls with the tops peeking out.
Step 6: Mix some white paint with water and fill in the clouds with sweeping, arched strokes. Start at the top and work your way down. Because your background is still wet, the blue and white will blend together to create your fluffy clouds!
Step 7: Voila! So soft, so fluffy!
Step 8: Take a step back and admire your dreamy clouds.
Step 9: You’re painting like a pro artist! Sip your wine, take a bow and put your skills to use.
You've mastered creating fluffy clouds for your next wine and paint party!
