Stretched art canvas Acrylic paint in three colors Paint roller Bucket and foam cup Polyurethane
Instructions: Step 1: Pick your paint colors. For a subtle look, choose a deep color for the background and two slightly more vibrant colors for the circles. Use a small paint roller to coat the canvas, including the sides. Add a second coat if needed. Let dry. Step 2: Rim the edge of the bucket with paint. Turn the bucket over and press the rim on the canvas. Don't worry about drips as they add to the effect. Re-coat the bucket and continue making circles. Step 3: Use a foam cup and another color to add smaller circles. Let dry. Seal with polyurethane. Courtesy of Better Homes and Gardens.com
