'I believe in unicorns and rainbows' painting with lights by TandiArt

Hi Arty Souls:) 

Today I have for you a painting which transforms at night:) Is is a special gift for my little daughter who has fear of darkness. I wanted to make a painting which is decoration for her room but also can be use as an additional light:) I up-cycled my old canvas by covering it with Heavy Gesso by Prima.

Then I added colours with acrylics and my recent obsession- glitter by Finnabair. I love these sets with glitters which has few different shades of one colour. I used two sets in the painting.

Then I used Watercolors by Prima to paint my unicorn.

I used glass glitter also by Prima to add sparkle to his horn;) Then I made holes in the canvas and attached the lights. I secured the lights at the back with a sellotape.

Try and play with this idea:) I think the Christmas scenery would be really nice with light too!

 I hope you got inspired,
 Love, Sylwia
