Big Cup vs. Little Cup


What style do you like? Do you like the geode look or the abstract squiggles?  Now you know how to create them.  The trick is knowing when to stop and when to push forward.


Do the same colors in a big cup vs. a little cup.

Why I like the little cups

It’s easier for me to do little bits of paint with little cups.

The actual pouring from the cup will impact the colors because they mix each time you pour and it backwashes into the cup.  Bigger cups have bigger backwashes so they go muddier faster. That tends to be more of a moot point if you fill the cup all the way to the top like I do with the little cups.  But I will tell you, that is a lot of paint for an 8×10 canvas.




Here are close ups of each canvas dry.
