DIY Galaxy Painting

Firstly, choose your favorite lettering. I am making this for my bedroom, so I wanted something that would remind me to be in gratitude. ‘Thank you’ is my word of choice. Choose what suits best for you.

Sketch it with a pencil and when you like how it looks, outline it with a marker.

Erase the pencils lines to reveal a neat outline.

Use the outlines as a guide and cutout the alphabets from a glitter sheet. Alternatively, you can also paint them any color.

Time to paint. I am using a light weight plywood I had lying around the house. You can use a canvas or even a hard paper. Choice is yours!

I have marked about 1.5cm border around the board and taped it with a clear tape. We will remove this tape after the painting is complete and taping it this way before the painting will reveal a nice clean outline.

Bring those acrylics out! We would need black, white, persian blue, yellow and pink, and an old cloth or a sponge. Try not to use brushes because we are aiming for a random diffused look. Sponge works best. My sponge decided to play hide & seek with me that day!

Dab the colors and blend them together.

Before the colors dry out, bring in the black and fill the gaps.

Next, take a toothbrush, dip it in white and spray random white dots all over. Make a few bigger than others and a few more closer than the rest. These are our stars!

Once dry, remove the tape and paint the borders and sides. I had a tough time choosing between white and gold colors. White won!

Next, use fevicol to paste the letters. Use a ruler to arrange them so that they have even spacing on all sides.

And the painting is done! Told you it was going to be quick & easy!
