Grapefruit in vibrant colours

Acrylic painting with impressive 3D effects

Here's a juicy grapefruit that really does look good enough to eat! Painted in vivid colours, this fabulous work of art came about with the help of the edding acrylic 3D double liner – a flexible tube featuring two applicator tips. The narrow tip is ideal for fine lines and highlights, while the broad tip is flatter and lends itself to larger areas and structures. The 3D double liner contains artist-quality acrylic paste, which can be used to great effect to create tactile paintings. We show you how to realise this impressive work of art on canvas with our step-by-step instructions and detailed video tutorial. Have fun!
