Introduction: How to Paint a Galaxy
Want to paint a galaxy? This DIY painting is super easy, and super fun!
A blank canvas, paintbrushes, dark blue paint, purple paint, white paint, lime green paint, light pink paint (all acrylic), and a cup of water.
Step 1: Base Color
Paint the blank canvas with a mixture of dark blue and a darker purple. Let it dry.
Step 2: Add Stars
Using a very rough paintbrush, or, as I used, an old toothbrush, flick white paint onto the blue background. Flick it very lightly around the whole canvas, then make a more densely packed line of stars right across the surface diagonally. After the white, do the same with lime green and light pink, only not as much.
Step 3: Add Details
Using a small brush and white paint, Make 2 cross shapes for brighter stars, one bigger than the other. You can also make streaks of white for shooting stars.
Step 4: Done!
Hang your new painting and enjoy looking at it!
