Kit includes:

Instructions/ How to get started:

Grab your canvas & paints and let your creativity run wild!  Paint a landscape, mini portrait, or something totally abstract. Whatever you create will be unique!

Tips for making:

  • When mixing your paint, start with just a little water - you can always add more to thin it out.
  • If you’re looking to add texture to your piece, plaster of Paris is great; but if you don’t have that Elmer’s school glue works too. You just have to wait for it to dry.
