The Story:

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.
