Crafty canine canvas: Make your own dog art
31 May 2023
‘Howl’ about making your own dog art? This simple yet striking idea can be done in any Resene paint colours you choose. Just find a silhouette online of your dog’s breed and use this as a template to create your own artwork at home. Whether it’s bright vivid colours or black and white for a monochromatic look, this canvas will look great in any room of your home.
You will need:
- Large canvas, 60cm x 60cm
- Template/print out of a dog silhouette
- Resene testpots in colours of your choice. Fleur used Resene Half Stack and Resene Spanish Green.
Step 1: Start by painting your canvas with two coats of your chosen Resene base colour. Fleur used Resene Half Stack. Allow for the first coat to dry before applying the second coat.
Step 2: Either draw an outline of a dog on your canvas with a pencil, or use a printout silhouette of a dog and draw around it on to your canvas.
Step 3: Paint the dog with two coats of your chosen Resene colour. Fleur used Resene Spanish Green.
