Posted on March 2, 2016October 13, 2016Painting The Purple Blue And Black Butterfly The butterfly painting was created with acrylic paints on the front of a handmade card. Today I finished painting the purple, blue and black butterfly. First, I drew a butterfly on the front of a handmade card. Purple acrylic paint was used to shade the large sections on the butterfly wings. The purple portions of the butterfly wings dried overnight. Sparkly blue acrylic paint was used to paint in the specks on the butterfly wings. The rest of the butterfly wings were filled in with the black acrylic paint . Also, sparkly black and white acrylic paint to paint the body of the insect. The video below illustrates how the butterfly painting evolved over two days.
