Canvas Bag: Part I

My sister and I began to paint our canvas bags tonight. We both started off with the color teal, and its part coincidence and part on purpose; I only have 3 colors, and teal just happen to be the only good base color. I began painting the facial features to my bag (see design from previous post) and must wait until tomorrow when the teal paint dries, to paint on the yellow overall pattern. And then after that, I can paint on the red “cheeks”.

Canvas Bag - painting on facial features

We’re painting these bags instead of screen printing because I don’t own screen printing equipment. I wish I could crank one out in one night, but for now, I’m ok with having to do it slowly by hand.
