Item 5721 – Nebula

This painting was created using the flip cup method. The colors were individually mixed with pouring medium, and then all those colors were added to one cup. You can layer the colors carefully or you can dump them in casually — each will give different results. The cup of paint was then poured on the substrate which is now tilted for composition and to remove excess paint. If silicone was added, this is when cells begin to appear which is a really fun process to watch as the cells evolve over minutes or even hours.

Adding black and white to a flip cup painting is always a bit tricky. Not unlike when you mix complementary colors, the end result can be…not attractive. This 9×12 ended up being the perfect balance, and the cells were consistent throughout. Another one of my favs.

If you desire, I can cover the back of the canvas with craft paper, and a sawtooth hanger can also be added at no charge.
