String Pull Paint Pour – Floral Canvas

  1. Make sure you cover all your surfaces well, and even use a small box or tray to catch your paint drips.
  2. Spread a thick layer of white paint with a craft stick or spatula all over your canvas, this will give your paint and string something to grip to.
  3. Choose two paint pouring colours and pour into separate cups.
  4. Cut 4 pieces of string approx. 20-25cm having two long and two short lengths .
  5. Place two strings in one pot of paint and two in the other colour , leaving some string dry to hold onto. Use a craft stick or paint brush to mix the strings into the paint to cover them well.
  6. One at a time take your strings out of the paint and lay onto your canvas at different heights, make them curve around in different directions and alternate the colours too.
  7. One at a time, slowly pull your strings down and away from the canvas. You will see the paint start to create a pattern into the white paint, you can change your strings direction as you pull away. Repeat with all of your strings and leave to dry overnight
  8. Once dry, hang your canvas to admire your beautiful work!
