Title: Magenta Melted
Size: 2″ x 3″
Magenta Melted is a tiny abstract painting made using acrylic paint on a mini canvas. There is a sawtooth hanger attached to the back for easy hanging.
Magenta Melted was one of many pieces made with the runoff paint from Not Crayons. By this point there wasn’t much runoff paint left so I added a bit more magenta and purple to what remained. I gently stirred the paint just enough to get the colors to mix a bit.
To create this piece, I laid the mini canvas face-down in the paint. I used a palette knife to coat the sides. I carefully lifted it out of the paint & flipped it over to dry. It was then painted with an acrylic glaze to protect it. This is a super easy and fun technique that I encourage everyone to try at least once.
Mini canvases are perfect for filling in awkward gaps in college displays of framed art. They’re also perfect for office cubicles & other tiny spaces. This one has a sawtooth hanger attached to the back but it can be easily removed and replaced with a magnet for some unique refrigerator or locker art.
