Sharpie and Acrylic Splash by PinstripeChris Sharpie and Acrylic Splash by PinstripeChris
I had another idea I wanted to try out today involving more acrylic splashing on a sharpied canvas piece. So I grabbed a fresh piece of 11"x14" canvas and jotted some basic sharpie art down really quick, then used a really simple and fast masking technique to cover up the areas areas I wanted to keep from getting acrylic on. Then I splashed in some black acrylic from the bottom left corner, then red acrylic in from the top right corner. Lastly I removed the mask to reveal the cleanest brightest remaining parts of the canvas. This method worked great to create a layered effect without either set of elements dominating the other. This is just a small test piece, but I'll be able to use what I learned on this to do it on a larger scale :)

My wife has named this on "Beautiful Disaster"
Yes, we are 311 fans :)
I've got this piece for sale, who would like?

Love the splatter effect. It gives the sharpie lines movement almost. Very good.

really liking this new version..especially the delineation on the larger arrow piece where the acrylic meets the black.did you have to mask that to create the sharpened line? or was it post production... Very cool !

Thank you! And yes, even tho you read the description already I used a quick masking technique and removedit all right after I was done spattering paint so that the edges would flow slightly while drying :)
