You get a white picture because the shot is overexposed.
You see, the slower the shutter speed is, the brighter the shot.

In order to counter this, you can use a narrower aperture(F stop).
You can also use a lower ISO setting.

Try this:
Shutter Speed- between 11 to 30 seconds for a longer exposure.
Aperture - between f/8 and f/32
ISO - 100 or 200

Place the camera on a tripod or somewhere where it's being held put in one spot.
Angle the camera towards the ground(it will be easier for beginners to focus on an object like this).
Place an object on the ground.
Turn off the lights and light paint your object.

EDIT:

Or if I do at night it won't take the picture it just keeps trying to focus for about two minutes. Does anyone know how to make it work? Thank you


The lower the shutter speed is, the slower the photo will be taken. Your camera isn't focussing for that long when taking pictures at a low shutter speed.
Don't set your shutter speed to Bulb if you're light painting, unless you got a remote control with a shutter release button.
