DIY of the day
I really love these DIY projects, they make me excited and usually, I can't wait to make them.
This one is really nice and funny, and easy to create. You can even involve your kids in the activity, they will absolutely love it.
So if you have some empty walls, which are crying out for some colorful artworks, you should try to do it. I'm sure that everybody's going to admire it and ask "where did you buy it?"
So let's check the materials that we need: 5 potatoes, acrylic paints in rainbow colors, black, white, and fluorescents, paper cups, brushes, plastic plates for mixing paints, ruler, pencil, large pieces of paper (however big you want your artwork).
Step 1: Use your ruler and pencil place little marks where you are going to stamp your potato.
Step 2: Mix the paint. To get the greatest variety of colors mix your paint yourself in paper cups.
Step 3: Cut one or two of the potatoes in half and cut out a 3/4″ circle with a knife. You’ll want some more potato stamps so you can print with more colors at the same time.
Step 4: Print with one color at a time, place the paint on the plate so you can stamp the potato in it. Then start stamping randomly throughout the print. Continue with all the colors until it's all filled out.
