Step by Step Van Gogh’s Starry Night Acrylic Painting Tutorial

In this step by step video, Ginger will show you how to mix acrylic paint with a heavy gel modeling medium so you will be able to create van Gogh's Starry Night with thick, rich texture and vibrant colors.

Note: If you watched the first part on YouTube, then you will want to start on part 3. There have been some questions about using Gesso or 3D Gel instead of the Modeling Paste and Ginger offers her views under the lesson.
