I absolutely love the straw blowing technique! It's so much fun and you get different results every time. I did this piece awhile ago, and did not want to hide very much of it, so last week's sketch challenge was perfect for it. I chose several colours of craft acrylic paints (mauve, turquoise, dark blue) and placed several drops of each separately on white cs and blew it around on the paper with a drinking straw, then chose the next colour and continued with each colour. At the end, I added a few drops of silver paint and blew them around and then scraped the wet paint down on the paper. I love the results!
