Good Afternoon Everyone, Today I just wanted to do a Post on Painting on Canvas Tote Bags, It is really a lot of fun, and it doesn't have to be a hard time consuming project. First of all, Step 1.go to your favorite hobby & craft store and purchase a Tote bag, Apron, or anything you may want to paint on. Step 2.you will want to wash your item before painting on it, when you dry the item, don't use fabric softener, I am not sure if that is a must or not, I just don't use softener sheets. Step 3. either free hand your design onto your purchased item, or you can use a iron on transfer pencil, trace the design you are using with the pencil, then iron onto your item Step 4. you will need to purchase some textile medium, to mix with your acrylic paints Step 5. if you are painting on a tote bag, I always put a piece of cardboard in the bag, so the paint doesn't bleed through to the back of the bag, also if it is an apron or something similar, also use cardboard under your project. Step 6. Begin painting, following the directions on the bottle of textile medium, TEXTILE MEDIUM turns any acrylic paint into FABRIC PAINT Step 7. After you have finished all of the base coats of color, let your project dry before you go any further, when dry you can add any amount of detail you may want, I always add highlights & shadows in this step. Step 8. after you have painted all you are painting, let you project dry, I let it dry for a few day's, then I turn my project inside out, and Iron back & forth for a few minutes on a hot setting on my iron, to set the paint, not to hot. Step 9. Now you have an amazing project for yourself, or as a gift for someone you love. I am showing two Canvas tote bags & two child size aprons, I have completed to share with you. Hope you have an Amazing Day & Happy Painting

Today I am sharing a few of the tricks, I have learned about in my many years of painting, I love to paint on wood, more than any other medium, however I paint on old milk cans, fabric, paper-mache, canvas and more, So I want to share this with all of you DIY peeps out there. PAINTING ON WOOD 1. If you cut your own wood, that is awesome, I do & it is very fun & sometimes challenging, 2. Transfer you pattern onto the wood, & cut the shape out, sand, I use a belt sander, than with fine sand paper, I use a hand sander. 3. Before you start painting, sand with a piece of fine sand paper 220 grit, then wipe clean using a tack cloth, 4. Transfer your design onto the wood cutout, I do this step by using graphite transfer paper. I transfer all lines, before base painting. 5. Base coat all areas of your project, (HINT : EXCEPT THE BLACK AREAS) I save all black work for the last step in every project, as black tends to smear easily. 6. After base colors dry's use a piece of brown paper bag, to (LIGHTLY) sand the base coat colors, this creates a smooth surface, for painting which makes your projects look awesome when finished. You will need to apply 2-3 coats of base colors, some colors require more coats. 7. After all base coats are applied, now you are ready for the detail that will make your project pop, If you can still see all of the transfer lines great, if not you need to re-transfer those lines so you can see them, now the fun begins 8. Floating, Dry brushing, Stippling, & Lining, all of these steps are easy, even for the beginner painter. 9. When you are satisfied with your results, you are ready for the spray, I use a gloss spray, for everything except primitive items, on those I use a Matte finish. I have added a page of Techniques I use in Decorative Painting Enjoy !
