Go psychedelic, just go play! My mood board of vintage band posters that inspired my creation.
For my base, I wanted to do a rainbow gradient across my canvas. I created this gradient by swiping a variety of traditional nail polish colors directly onto a makeup sponge and gently dabbing it onto the nails. I did multiple coats, letting each one dry, until the desired opacity was achieved.
I'm known for my water marbled nail designs, so I had to incorporate this in some way. I did a flowery, psychedelic water marble on top of my rainbow base using a solid black and a sheer polish. I created a bull's eye by dropping beads of alternating colors onto the water. Colors pictured here are 'Liquid Leather' and 'Rainbow' from China Glaze.
After creating my bull's eye, I used a toothpick to swirl the colors into psychedelic flowers.
After I swirled my desired print, I dipped the nail into the water and carefully cleaned up the excess polish using an orange wood stick.
Once the nails were dry, I created the backdrop for my poster using Wildflower's Art Paints in 'Pitch'.
All details on my poster were painted using Wildflower's Art paints and Mini-mini brush.
The finished product! I used a small piece of a makeup sponge, tweezers, and 'Pitch' Art Paint from Wildflowers to create an old, distressed look to my poster.
