Guess what, you guys!!?!?! Last week I was the lucky winner of a set of fun Elmer’s Painters Markers! These markers can paint metal, canvas, clothing, paper, and pretty much anything else. I squeezed in thirty minutes one day while waiting on dinner to cook to create a fun Piggy Paint Dot Art Canvas. As quick as they are to make, I think that these would be perfect for a fun party decoration. Change up the animal– the technique is still the same.
- Elmer’s Painters Markers
- Optional: A vinyl stencil to help create the shape
I used my Cricut From My Kitchen Cartridge to cut out a 6″ pig shape out of vinyl. I applied the vinyl shape to the canvas.
Pick one color paint marker and create swirls on the canvas around the pig shape. Just use the paint marker to create dots!
Fill in with the remainder colors. I saved the pink for the pig.
Let the swirls dry and then remove the pig vinyl shape.
With the pink, make dots around the pig shape until the little piggy is no longer blank.
Simple, right? You know I’m all for projects that I can complete while dinner cooks. And these paint markers are a great way to paint without making a mess.
