A simple style of painting only dots of different sizes, but when done slowly, patiently and in a planned way it looks amazing. This is the first one I made. So it has some mistakes and not very neat. Also, there are many techniques to do this. This one is easy for kids to do.
The one in the picture is made on a old CD - we can use it as a coaster or a hanging. If you dont have a CD, you can make it as a painting or greeting card too.
Old CD or plain paper
Paints - Thick Poster colours without mixing water like normal painting or Acrylic/Fabric colours
Any or all of these -to make dots of different sizes
Brush of 2 ,3 sizes whichever you have
Pencil that comes with a rubber behind
Unwanted pencil -to use the tip.
First spread a newspaper so that paint doesn't fall on the floor.
In the shining side of the CD or paper, draw lines- first divide into 4 parts. Next divide each part into 2. Now, we have 8 portions. The lines will be slightly visible on CD. Dont make it very dark as we cannot rub it later.
Dip each brush / pencil /rubber /earbud in paint slightly and press on a rough sheet to see what size they are, so that it is easy to decide where to put which size dots.
The rubber pencil will give biggest dot and pencil will be smallest. Choose some 4-5 colours to paint and start by dipping the pencil slightly in the paint in 1st colour. Gently press on CD. All big dots will look nice when you do it on those lines which we did. If you want to use the same pencil for another colour also, clean it nicely first to remove 1st paint and then use for second. Dont mix colours.
Keep using the other brush/ earbuds /pencil in different colours to completely cover the CD/paper.
Allow it to dry. If it is a CD, you can stick some sticker in the center and a satin ribbon at the back for making it hang. If it is a coaster it will be empty to keep the cup or you are doing it on paper you can cover all areas with dots without leaving gap..
