D.I.Y.- Cy Twombly Blackboard Artwork

I know I could never afford a real piece of artwork by Cy Twombly but I thought it might be fun to try and copy one of my favorites…his blackboard covered in scribbles.

All you need is a piece of black foam core (32″ x 40″), chalk and a rag. Before doing the design take a piece of chalk, lay it on its side and lightly rub it over the entire surface of the foam core. Then use a rag and remove some of the chalk. You should be left with a coating of white dust. Now go ahead and mimick Towmbly’s strokes or create your own.
