Write your name, the date and a special message if you like on the back of your canvas before you start.
Optional: Use painters tape to cover areas on your canvas to create negative space designs. You'll splatter over the tape. It's important to remove the tape with a toothpick when paint is still wet.
We'll provide protective gear like shower caps, goggles (if you wear glasses) & robes or coveralls for you to protect your clothes. Plan to remove your shoes and socks and paint barefoot in booties.
You will look something like this if you are an adult.
Or like this if you are a child.
Plan to take before and after photos. We are happy to take these for you. Just ask a Muse for help when you are ready!
Paint is washable, but we highly recommend wearing clothing you don't care about, just in case. Paint sometimes travels when you take off your gear.
We want you to be comfortable! Let us know if we can adjust the AC. Music is a great complement to splatter painting- rock out to your cellphone playlist if the studio music doesn't match your mood!
When you enter, you will find paints & brushes ready for you. Make sure that every color you plan to use has it’s own paintbrush. This ensures that the paints stay separate, vibrant, & true to color.
Hang your canvas on the wall using clips or on one of the easels around the room.
If you purchased the glow experience, you will find the neon paints in their own row. Start with the regular paint to perfect your technique and palette with the lights on.
We know-Splatter is fun. It's easy to get carried away! But using too many layers of paint will warp canvas. Be safe & pay it forward to the next guest-Refrain from dumping paint jars, graffitti,etc.
The splatter room is equiped with a sink, mirror and baby wipes for cleaning up when you are done. We also have hooks and hampers for your robes and booties. Caps go in the garbage.
Someone in your group not splattering? They can watch the action from our viewing window if desired.
Be careful in transporting your canvas. We have bags for smaller canvases and newsprint for larger canvases available. Paint will be wet for 24 hours.
Cheers! Splatter painting is an exercise in letting go. Enjoy the process, laugh and break down your barriers. Have fun and try a DIY project with us next you come in.
