Artist’s In The Making? Thumbprint Art….

Have you ever played around with Thumbprint Art?   We have several Ed Emberley drawing books in our craft cabinet – they are alot of fun!

If you have kids and they like the artsy crafts stuff, these are worth the purchase.  Even fun for adults, offering simple, low key, no thinking required, artsy fun.   All thats required are some colored ink pads, a sharp pencil, and your fingers and thumb!

My daughter  has been on a thumbprint art roll lately…. creating ‘story pages’ with her friend.  They claim they are making a book.    I’ll share some –

Here you can see the trim sample using the Caromal Colours Country Living Artisian Collection of Decorative Paints – A Distress For Success Kit, color BAYBERRY created the lovely finish. The flat sample underneath is also worked up using The Bayberry Textured Basecoat, but instead of just toning, Caromal Colours Wall Glaze was brushed on, and Stried, to give more interest to the panels.

In review, here’s what you will need to refinish the frame-   Distress for Success Kit    COLOR     BAYBERRY

Caromal Colours_1242709056811

You can use this for the whole thing, or if you’d like to follow this project to a T and ‘strie’ the main panels with glaze, then you would also need to order a quart of  Wall Glaze COLOR  COFFEE STAINattribute_lightbox_GLCS32.jpg

And lastly, some Liberon Wax  COLOR  NEUTRAL   for protection –
