Create an abstract swimming scene by experimenting with the unique qualities of acrylic paint! Chrissy demonstrates how she uses a rough sketch as an outline, then mixes and applies Utrecht acrylic paints to canvas using recycled plastic spoons. Learn how to achieve the same marbled effect by carefully combining colors without the use of a paintbrush or palette. Enjoy the process of creating as much as you’ll admire your complete, one-of-a-kind work of art!
