  • How to make a piece of quote art. Typography Canvas  - Step 1
    Step 1

    Pick your canvas, and spray paint with your desired color. Allow to dry completely (preferably over night).

    Pick out complementing accent flat-sided marbles (these can be found inexpensively at a dollar store, or a thrift store).

    Step 2

    Pick where you would like your words to be, and draw a shape around them (I did a heart), and draw in your quote. I used a lighter sharpie to start, then went over it with black.

    The lettering was inspired by Madeline & Diane Tompkin's alphabet in the book, "Creative Lettering: Techniques & Tips from Top Artists."

    Start gluing down the marbles. To make it less messy, just go row by row.

    Step 3

    Keep filling in your canvas as desired, being sure to use plenty of mod podge, as the marbles will be heavy. Leave on a flat surface. Allow to dry completely before moving (it should now be clear).

    Touch up your lettering if needed.
