I thought it would be fun to make her first project a Valentine for her daddy. Yes, I am posting this a week late, thankyouverymuch. If I had it to do all over again, I'd quarter the recipe. See the jar on the left in the picture below? Yeah, that's the extra paint. Right now it's in the fridge, just begging for someone to mistake it for mayonnaise. I thought I'd try it later to see if it works as leftovers. I'll keep you posted on that one.
I decided to go with just two colors, mostly because I only cleaned two baby food containers for the project. Of course we did pink, because who makes a Valentine without a little pink? I wanted to do pink and red, but I'm pretty sure we would have needed about a gallon of food coloring to turn that little jar red, so I settled for pink and blue.
Next time, I'll also have a bath ready and waiting. Painting is messy work!
the frame wall, so up it went! We made a few other changes since you saw it last. Once I get it all the way I want it, I'll do one big post.
our Valentine's date when I was framing this, so I did a horrible job and made it all wrinkly. At the time, I planned to fix it once we got home. That was seven days ago, and I haven't touched it...oops! Oh, and I mentioned that next time I'd use cardstock or some more suitable surface for the painting. This is why:
I'm kind of nervous to see how the painting ages. Have you ever used cornstarch paint? Should I expect some sort of mold or pest problem a few months down the road?
