Instructions

  1. 1

    Squeeze or pour acrylic paint into a bowl to a depth of about 1/4 inch. Use the same type of acrylic paint that you would use when painting a picture.

  2. 2

    Place your canvas on a flat surface. This will enable you to apply the acrylic paint with a stamp, without drips.

  3. 3

    Dip a rubber stamp into the paint so that only the rubber portion of the stamp is covered. Tap any excess paint back into the bowl.

  4. 4

    Press the rubber stamp straight down onto the canvas, then lift it straight up again. This will prevent the paint from smudging.

  5. 5

    Continue painting the picture using your brushes.
