I’m not much of a painter, but I grabbed a few canvases while they were half price, thinking I’d come up with a project later. Ta-da!
I used some cheap acrylic metallic blue paint for the base and then went over it with a silvery grey. I found a “blueprint” for the starship Enterprise online (this is actually NCC 1701 A, which was never used in the TV show but appeared in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home*) and taped it to the back side of the canvas. I then used a seam ripper to poke holes along the outside of the ships. Then I took some gold embroidery thread and sewed into the pre-punched holes.
I’m brainstorming other silhouetted images to make another one. Hopefully this time I’ll be patient enough to take a few process pictures along the way.
