Use a medium brush to paint the canvas in Carbon Black. Let dry.
Prep the dirty pour by mixing one part paint with three parts pouring medium into separate cups. Use Titanium White, Ultramarine Blue, Primary Magenta, Cobalt Teal Hue, and Carbon Black. Stir well.
Combine all paints into one single cup.
Pour the paint onto one side of the canvas and tilt until the entire canvas is covered.
Let dry completely.
Pour Topcoat onto canvas. Tilt until the entire canvas is covered. Let dry according to label instructions.
Make several tiny pours on freezer paper to create the planets. Do this by repeating the dirty pour process using your choice of colors. Let dry and remove by peeling.
Use various sized cups and/or lids to trace circles (planets) in various sizes. Use scissors to cut them out.
Arrange the circles on the canvas. Once you are happy with the layout, use a small brush and Americana Decou-Page to adhere the planets to the galaxy background. Optional: Get creative by adding rings to one or multiple planets.
