How to paint a TARDIS Galaxy Canvas!
Okay, so I bought a load of canvases from a local store, and because I've never done a canvas before, I had no idea what to do.
UNTIL I WATCHED DOCTOR WHO THAT NIGHT.
I realised that the TARDIS was a perfect item to paint, and I really wanted to try out painting outer space, and so ta-dah!
It took me quite a while (10 hours!), but if people are reading this then they're probably much more experienced than me, so maybe 3 hours? It doesn't matter, because you decide what you want to paint inside the TARDIS!

When you think you've done with adding the colours and whatnot, get a really thin paintbrush and use it to create thin lines around some of the whirls, to add depth. Also, use black on top of some colours, like using it to create a black-hole!
IMPORTANT: If you want to add stars, a lot of tutorials recommend flicking white paint off a toothbrush; DO NOT DO THIS! It's particularly messy when I practised on paper, and did not give the star effect I was hoping for. Instead, use a very fine-tipped brush to dot the stars in places around the painting, of varying size. Maybe add a galaxy in the distance!
When you think you've finished, and done all you done, very carefully remove the masking tape and stencil, and create the edge by going around it in the black marker pen.
And now, you have the perfect painting to hang in your room!
Also, I've added a quote at the bottom in pencil ("... it's bigger on the inside!"); feel free to add quotes around it, or pictures, or anything you want!
