This is one of my first pieces of artwork. I’m now offically a full blown artist.

Enjoy, do different colours, different shapes. You’ll be amazed at what these dots can do!!


Material

  • Tooth picks or skewers.
  • Paints (Thick paint)
  • Canvas

Method

  1. Clean and dry canvas.
  2. Set paints up, choose colouring to your desire.
    Create a story, paint anything you want
  3. Dip the skewer into paint, only the tip. Then press gently onto canvas board.
    Continue until you get preferred pattern.

    (Only call it Aboriginal dot painting if youre of Aboriginal decent. Otherwise, it is just a dot painting)
