Rain-Beaux ( an art idea)
Beaux- peep ( use to decorate kids bedrooms)
I taught kids to do their own at a recent art class I taught.
Firstly – go onto the computer and select a font you like. I used the coco cola font – a cursive type that looks very “old worldish”.
Print out the childs name to the size you want to do in the middle of the canvas
Get carbon paper ( $1 per sheet from any news agency or art shop)
Paint the surface of the canvas and dry with hair dryer
Always dry well with hair dryer first.
Above- we added the bits of gold leaf and transfered the name on with carbon paper.
I usually get Indian ink and a fine brush to paint name on with.
But if you are nervous to do this- use a sharp black permanent marker.
The results are beautiful. ( see the proud look on mias face…., so cute).
The Eliana grace one I did at the top of the page was for a new borns bed room. ; mum was stoked. Xxxx
This project looks more difficult than it is. It’s quite easy.
I have done boys ones with soccer balls and a masculine font for the boys name.
