Steps to make your own abstract art piece:

Step 1:

We would first start with the highlight of this DIY project: the colour changing paints. For this we will need a clean plastic squeeze bottle in which we will add a pinch of the UV colour changing pigment with a generous quantity of gloss pouring medium.

Step 2:

Thoroughly mix the mixture created so that all the ingredients are combined well. It can be mixed using a stick or by shaking the bottle that contains the mixture. After this your paints are ready to go.  

*The first two steps need to be repeated every time you need to make a new colour. Remember to use different plastic bottles for each colour to avoid any mixing of colours.


Step 3:

Now comes the fun part! Bring out your canvas and let your imagination run wild. Since we are creating abstract art, you can use any canvas you want, big or small, depending on the amount of paint you have. You can even use normal acrylic paints along with the UV colour changing paints to make your art piece one of a kind!


Step 4:

Lay your canvas on a flat surface to begin with. Now you can start pouring your paints generously in whichever way shape or form you want to create your desired picture. You can also make use of plastic cups, a hairdryer, popsicle sticks or any other tools you want to direct your paint to your desired shape and direction.


Step 5:

After you are satisfied with your masterpiece, set it aside for a while so that it in dry. After it is completely dried, coat the whole canvas with a layer of resin to set your design in place.

Step 6:

Grab a UV light to look at your masterpiece glow! You can even attach a hook behind your canvas to display your art work in your favourite corner of your house!
