Create personalized transient wall art by adding paint to canvas and allow to drip dry. Do you have canvas and acrylic paints laying around? You can create this beautiful kids art in no time.My son made this one for his bedroom. He is a six years old and no longer wants the fire trucks, police cars etc… We have been incorporating his artworks and photos. Now, this canvas is a feature in his room. You will need acrylic paints (the gloss ones create a nice shine on canvas), canvas small or large, stand to rest the canvas on while it drips and paper to collect the drip. (My website contain affiliates and I do get a commission off some of the items sold).Mount your canvas on a plate holder or stand….set some paper underneath as you will have puddles of paint after it drips. Allow your child to add the colors they like. Keep adding paint at corners or middle anywhere …just remember it is going to drip. Keep adding paint even if you create a layer over paints..this will create a very transient art pattern when dried.Here is how the color variation looked with more green added.Please remember to have paper underneath to collect the paint puddle as it drips. We allowed this to drip until there wasn’t a lot of paint dripping on paper then we laid flat. When laying flat place pencil or chalk underneath canvas so it doesn’t stick to the paper.Leave overnight to air dry. Then in the morning, you’ll have beautiful art to add to your child’s bedroom. We have been making several of these in the daycare. Hope your child will enjoy this activity as much as he did. Miss Sue
