We know we're talking about spray paint most days here at COLORSHOT, but today is not that day. So put down your can of Hello Handsome and pick up a bottle of Hello Handsome instead, because today we're talking about COLORSHOT Premium Acrylic Paints. We're not bragging or anything (or maybe we are), but have you tried our acrylic paints yet? Not only are they highly pigmented to stand out on a variety of both light & dark surfaces, they're also mixable to create even MORE colors, they dry to the touch in 30 minutes, AND they complement the entire line of COLORSHOT color products so you always have the perfect color in the formula you need for your DIY projects. If we haven't convinced you yet, maybe our friend Steffi Lynn can! Check out this stunning painted letter artwork she created with COLORSHOT Acrylic Paints; these are just some examples ... to see all letters, check out our Acrylic Paints section!
- COLORSHOT Premium Acrylic Paints (desired colors)
- Paint palette
- Pencil (optional)
If you aren't comfortable freehand creating your letter, you can first sketch it out lightly on the canvas with a pencil. Then begin painting with your base color. Because COLORSHOT dries quickly, apply lighter coats at a time, building layers as needed.
Let your base accent color dry a bit before adding the main color. If you'll be working accent designs like flowers over the top of your letter, brush the paint around the designs on the letters.
Use a detail brush like a liner paintbrush to add in detailed designs, starting with your darkest colors.
Use lighter colors to add highlights. Once you're happy with your design, let it dry completely before displaying. COLORSHOT Acrylic Paints dry to the touch in 30 minutes!
How pretty is this letter J?! And remember, COLORSHOT Acrylic Paints are mixable, so you can create your own custom colors if you don't have the shade you're looking for.
