Making Acrylics and Abstract Painting with Tracy V.

Hi Lindy’s Fans,

This year I participated in my first-ever 100 Day Challenge. I chose to create one 2-color mini abstract painting each day for 100 days. Needless to say by the end of the first month, I was running out of color combinations from my current acrylic supply.

Thank goodness for Lindy’s amazing color palette! I tinted white gesso with Lindy’s Magicals and Sprays for a whole new palette of combinations. Here is the first one I created. I just love the shade of blue I got from adding to Danny Zuko Denim, and UFO yellow has been my recent go-to to brighten things up.

  • Tint your gesso by slowly adding magical powder, add black craft paint or more white to adjust to the shade you want
  • Stamp your paper or canvas (optional)
  • Apply swipes of your Lindy’s acrylic with your fingers and scratch texture into some areas
  • Spray Lindy’s Starburst spray through the stencil and/or pounce some “magical” acrylic through the stencil with the make-up sponge
  • Create drips with your Lindy’s Starburst Spray
  • Dry completely and add a white frame with the Posca Pen
  • Add marks and doodles with the Posca and Gel Pens to finish off


  • Your favorite shades of Lindy’s Magicals and Sprays. I used Danny Zuko Denim and UFO Yellow Magicals, as well as UFO Yellow Starburst Spray
  • White Gesso or Acrylic Paint
  • Black craft paint
  • Stamp of your choice and black archival ink pad
  • Heavy watercolor paper or canvas
  • Skewer or another item to scratch paint
  • Make-up sponge to pounce through a stencil
  • Stencil
  • White Posca Paint Pen
  • Black Gel Pen

Leave a Little Love
