Your Children Create the Masterpieces
February 27, 2011
What’s fun to make, has your children as the painters and will be a great memento of your their youth? It’s a BODY PAINT PIECE OF ART. Here’s how.
1. Use a piece of stretched, framed canvas larger than your child and the paint used is acrylic or latex water-base house paint. The color brown is used here. Let the canvas dry.
2. Once dry, now the fun can begin. If you don’t have access to an outdoor venue because of accidents, then make sure to have a drop cloth under the canvas. Using again the same type of paint, use a different color (white here) and paint the back of your child. You have the option to have them “in their birthday suits” or lightly clothed. The less amount of clothes the better the imprint. Once fully painted, then carefully have them lay down for the imprint. This can also be done with hand prints or foot prints as well.
3. If there are any drips of paint or light foot prints you want to erase, then use the canvas color of paint and paint over.
