An art technique that is very popular on social media right now is squeegee painting. The videos I see on Instagram are absolutely mesmerizing. Random dots of paint are squeezed onto a white piece of paper, and then a squeegee spreads the paint into psychedelic patterns. After watching the videos, I decided to try it myself, and lo and behold, it really does work. It’s also a little addictive, so expect to spend hours with your paint and squeegee.

Your resulting artwork will be good enough to frame as is, or cut it up into smaller sections to make greeting cards, bookmarks or collages.

What you’ll need:

White paper
Acrylic paint in squeeze bottles
Squeegee (I bought one on Amazon)

1. Cover your work area with newspapers. This project can get messy. Place a blank piece of paper on top of the newspapers.

2. Squeeze small dots of various colors all over the paper.

3. Position the squeegee at the top of the paper and move it down while pressing it against the paper. Hold the top of the paper with a finger to keep it steady.

4. Your work of art is done instantly. Now let’s make more!
