Paint splattering is fun and therapeutic. If you are an artist or have done paint splatter art, you know what I mean. It is a great way to express your artistic side and release pent-up energy. Paintings made with the combination or tinge of paint splatter in them are a feast for the eyes. Open Pinterest, and you will see beautiful and scenic images of paint splatter art. At a glance, you know you want one or two pieces for your bedroom or to hang them on the living room wall to brighten up the place.
Equipped with paintbrushes, paint, and a canvas, you can create beautiful, poignant paint splatter effect across the canvas. Artists merely throw, drip, or flick the paint from the brush onto the canvas to achieve the splatter artistic effect.
Use any paint you want but watercolors and acrylic work best in this regard. Add a little water and make a smooth runny paste of the paint. To splatter paint, you need to be aware of the water’s consistency to paint to get the best paint splatter effect. Use a brush or even a toothbrush for splattering paint on the canvas. Likewise, you may also dribble dots on the canvas with paint. Nowadays “Acrylic pour art” is quite popular, which is a type of paint splatter effect. Artists pour different paint colors on the canvas and then move it around to give it a runny look. The best thing about paint splatter art is that it gives you the complete freedom to use whatever technique, paint, or ways to get the results you want. As it is in Arts, you are the master of your Canvas here, and no one can stop you.

Here’s a quick tutorial on how to turn any image into an SVG format image without having to use any complicated graphics editing software.
First, a quick primer on what is an SVG… SVG stands for Scalable Vector Graphics. It is a way to store digital information about an image. Most images you see on the web and other digital devices use a bitmap or pixel based image storage format. In other words, the image is captured with information about each dot in the image.
SVG format images are part of a category of images that are vector based. Vector based images store the image as a series of paths and nodes. Most cutting machines like the Cricut and Silhouette use SVG format images because the blade on the machine needs to know what direction (or path) to cut.
To turn a bitmap based image into a vector based image, you need special conversion software tools. This is an algorithm tricky conversion because there lots of different ways to do it with varying degrees in quality. Most graphic editing software like Adobe Illustration make you manually decide on those conversion settings which makes it really difficult to use if you’re not already familiar with Illustrator.
I use a software tool called Vector Magic. With Vector Magic, you just upload your image (you can even copy and paste it in) and it automatically just converts to an SVG format for you. You can make editorial adjustments afterward if you’d like but there is a baseline conversion ready to go if that’s good enough.
Here’s an image for you to give it a try yourself. It’s a bunch of cute animal drawings I did the other day. I just took a picture of it with my phone. Try copy and paste this image into the Vector Magic interface. (Right-click on the image below, select “copy”, then head over to Vector Magic and past it into the window or just hit Ctrl+V)
After you pasted your image into the Vector Magic window, it will automatically start to convert your image:
This will take a few seconds. When the process is complete, you will see the vectorized SVG image on the right with the original on the left.
If you don’t like the automated conversion, there are a number of different adjustments you can make from the right tool panel.
After making adjustments, you can download your converted image as an SVG and then upload it to your cutting machine interface like Cricut Design Space below:
