Have you ever seen a painting of a flower that was so realistic you felt like you could just reach out and touch it? Well, with this 3D painting, you can.

Using a glass of water to prop up a stretched canvas while holding a flower stem, you can create a work of art in which the flower pops out of the painting. Now, that’s what I call pop art.

What you’ll need:

Stretched canvas
Acrylic paint
Paint brush
Hobby knife
Glass or bottle
Flower with stem

1. Start with a blank stretched canvas. I bought mine at the 99 Cents Only store. Using acrylic paint, draw a vase of any shape, some leaves and a short stem. The vase and leaves should take up a little more than half the canvas.

2. At the top of the painted stem, cut twoshort  crisscrossed slits with a hobby knife to create an opening for the real flower’s stem. 

 

3. Insert a floral stem through the hole you’ve cut. 

4. Behind the canvas, place a drinking glass or a glass bottle filled with water Insert the floral stem into the water. Lean the canvas against the glass, which acts as an easel.
