Tip: For extra-wide strokes of colour, you can remove the sleeve and apply the entire width of the chalk.

Now irregularly apply acrylic paints in the colours of your choice across the canvas. You can also mix your own colours as desired. Leave the acrylic paint to dry for around 15 minutes.

Now take the Lumocolor Paint Markers and the Lumocolor Chalk Markers and set more accents. These can be dots, circles, lines or lettering. Whatever you want.
