Star Canvas


Hi everyone, I’m Kacie, welcome to my youtube
channel. This week I wanted to do something a little bit different, it’s a painting project,
because the walls in my apartment are so very very bland. Now I first saw this project on
Threadbanger. I am going to put a link to their channel in the box below. And I really
wanted to show you guys how I made my exciting lighted canvas. I made this because it is
so unique and you can really adapt it to your personality. Stick around I am going to show
you exactly how I made it. I bought a white canvas, and then I grabbed some black acrylic
paint. Obviously I got some on my finger. What you are going to do is cover the entire
canvas in a layer of black paint. Just keep covering, you might even have to do multiple
layers. I wanted mine to be really dark so I just kept adding. You are probably going
to need more than that little splotch I put on my pad earlier. I just kept covering it,
and what I wanted to make sure to do is paint everything in the same direction. So you get
that sweeping motion. I even covered all the edges. After looking at a printout of constellations
I wanted to use, I freehand added the dots to the canvas, I would get a better paint
pen than the generic one I used, it was hard, it just kept sticking. After I filled my canvas
with constellations. I went back and covered the extra white spots I left with my hand
with more black paint. After that was dry I took a nail and punctured each hole in the
constellations I wanted to light up. This is what the back should look like. I attached
the plug in the bottom corner just with some duct tape. Going in order I fit each light in all
the holes, it should look something like this when you are done. This is how it is lighting
up. I took more white paint, touched up some of the lines, and added some stars in the
black space, to give it more depth. Thanks for watching, now in hindsight I probably
would have gone with a bigger canvas, and maybe even a really long string of lights,
because I only got the 50 foot and I just feel more could have been lit up on this.
I really enjoyed making it. If any of you have an idea on what I could make next, please
leave those ideas in a comment below. Or on any of my social media sites that are linked
in the box below. See you next time. Bye!
