- Paint choice (unless you are going to stick with white canvas)
- Mod Podge
- Paint Brushes
Paint your canvas - I used 2 layers for this --- If you are sticking with white canvas, you can skip this step!
Find the silhouette you like best (I just used Google)... I then re-sized it in Photoshop to be 8X13 for my canvas... in order for it to print, I had to cut the image in half and print both.
I then cut out the image and taped it together... so that I could have 1 deer
I then outlined the deer with a marker on the canvas... I would recommend doing it in a light color, or a color that is similar to the glitter you are using!
I mixed my glitter with Mod Podge and painted it on. I did this for 2 reasons: 1. So there wasn't glitter everywhere, 2. So that the glitter didn't flake off later - it's stuck on there pretty good now.
I decided to make this an "Ombré" deer using 3 different shades of green glitter. You could always just use one color if that's more your fancy.
But I urge you to try this with what ever shape or critter you want, because it's fun to do and turns out awesome!
