We love Ronda Palazzari’;s brilliant Paint Splatter Tutorial that affords useful?insights and inspiration?to explore the process, like this bit that may give a clue into how Spencer Finch achieved his beautiful water colory dots:

I almost always add water to my paints when splattering, more to the tube acrylics and less to the liquid acrylics. You want the paint to be fluid enough to move, almost milky in texture. By adding a lot more water, you can make a watercolor-like splatter.

Dalmation spots can be done freehand or with a stencil.

If there’s one thing our Creative Crew members enjoy doing, it’s experimenting and trying new things with our products. This is especially true with our Tattered Angels line of mists and paints. Why use just one color if you could also layer colors over one another? How do our Glimmer Mists look on different textures? On different surfaces? Our Tattered Angels line is perfect for those new to mixed media as well as those for whom mixed media is a way of life! Afterall, if you’re a tattered angel, you have few creative boundaries, and can find no wrong in art. You want to have fun and share your creations and unexpected results from trying new things. It’s with this in mind that our Creative Crew member Laura Kuhlmann shares her own experiment and the unexpected — but really cool — results she got.
