Today I decided I want to do a big canvas it’s 60 cm x 80 cm
and I want to do a flip cup but I am going to use a bucket.
There was once candy in it I think it’s about 2 liter bucket.
So I’m going to fill this with all my colors and then I’m trying to turn the canvas and
the bucket. I hope it will go okay LOL
But I think it’s a nice challenge and I’m also challenging you to participate and do
the same. It will be great if we can see different people
trying to do the same and maybe you dare more then me and can do it with a bigger bucket.
I think it’s fun. It will be just for fun of course.
I have a couple of colors and black and white. I will mix the colors with some Dimethicone
oil. of course I have to get my Dimethicone. If I can find it…
where is it… found it… I have Metallic silver, we are going to use
a lot off paint. I have Prussian Blue from Lukas.
I have a Turquoise also from Lukas. I have a dark blue from Phoenix.
And I have a brilliant green from van Bleiswijck. And black and white but I won’t be put Dimethicone
in the black and white. I think I’m going to use about 7 drops in
the cup. And then stir it very well.
So I really hope you guys are going to participate I think it’s really fun!
I think the only trouble is trying to turn the canvas around and the bucket not sink
through the canvas lol But we will see.
A will do a little more Dimethicone in my silver metallic.
Okay, first I will start with filling the bucket with white.
We are going to use really a lot of paint. Thats okay.
Then I will use Turquoise, Dark Blue…
Brilliant Green, Silver metallic…
A little bit of black.. Silver metallic again..
Prussian Blue.. Brilliant Green…
Dark blue.. White again…
I hope the Dimethicone will work of course it’s not really very much at this amount of
paint, so I will do a couple of drops dimethicone on top.
Turquoise.. Prussian blue..
Some more white.. Dark blue…
Brilliant green… And the metallic silver…
I will just put this all aside… I taped some garbage bags on the table..
To protect my table. This canvas it too big to put on my tray.
And just a little bit more Brilliant green. I hope I didn’t make a mistake with the amount
of paint, but we will see.. I have still a white here so I can use that
if needed. I will just stir this a little bit.
The colors are really beautiful. I will make a close up for you..
I really love this color palette. Okay guys, of course I have to turn the canvas
so I will put the bucket aside. I’m going to put it down then put the canvas
on it.. Okay, I hope I can do this, it won’t be easy…
Wow, it worked…lol okay…
Now I will put white on the sides… Just to help it flow..
With my pallet knife I can divide it.. Sorry..
Okay guys, here we go! Wow
Let me see… I’ll get you a close up because this is so
Okay now we try to tilt the canvas.. Here we go..
Oh no, first I will use my torch This looks so beautiful…
I wish you guys were here with me so you could see it..
There are some air bubbles in it but not to much
That’s because I always pre mix my paint so this paints were there for a couple of weeks
already. So most of the air is out.
Okay, now I will tilt it first.. And torch a little more later.
Wow, I could jump of joy, it’s so beautiful. I will tilt it, and try to be very careful…
Feels heavy. I really love this, I wish could do this every
day hahaha But it’s taking a lot of paint so I would
be finished with my paints fast… But how beautiful is this guys!
Wow I hope I won’t ruin all the cells
Because of the tilting… This is soooo, this is really amazing
Omg, I’m so happy I did this, I was thinking about this for weeks,
I was a little bit scared to. haha This is so amazing…
I’m sorry I think I will leave the corners white..
okay I have to wipe my hands Guys.. I will just put a little bit more white
I’m so happy, I’m so happy (singing) I really hope you will join me doing this.
It will cost a lot of paint but you will get a lot of beauty in return..
Of course I will give you a close up after I’m finished blowing with the torch..
Well, the Dimethicone is working Lots of cell action here..
What an amazing big cells I think the metallics are really a must in
this because I put in a silver metallic and it’s also lifting my other colors
The brilliant green and all the blues have a metallic shine..
I think the silver metallic did that. Because there is a lot of cell action I won’t
torch all the paint.. Because I like the cells but it should not
be every where.. I mean those little ones.
So I will skip a couple of peaces.. And I will just blow torch a couple of spots.
This is so great.. I’m sorry I’m cheering here but I’m really
happy Yes, I really would recommend this colors..
They really look beautiful together, maybe there could be also some purple in it..
okay Now I’m going to make some close ups for you
Thank you for watching, I hope you will participate in the challenge
because I really would like to see how you would handle a full bucket.

Okay, I will make the close ups for you now. I’m trying to get the focus as good as possible,
I’m not so good with all that devices… Can you see how pretty this is..
So amazing. omg
You see there are some nice mixed cells, and where I used the torch there are some
smaller cells. aren’t they pretty 🙂
This is so gorgeous. I hope you can see the colors right.
I’ll get you a little bit closer.. I really love that prussian and dark blue
coming through I know people usually don’t like the dark
colors but I think they are necessary to give your painting some outlines.
Look how beautiful. This is so amazing guys..
I’m so happy I did this.. I don’t know why I was so scared to do this.
Because it’s really fun. okay I will give you an overview
