Friends, I present to you…. Colorful Chaos by Aki Endaya

This painting now has a special spot in our wall.

And all these colors just started with these three.

We have done several painting projects in the past. And my usual complaint is how hard it is to reopen tubs of paint. We usually pour paint from the cans to smaller containers. The problem with that is paint dries around the opening making the cover and can stick. So for our last project, we used spoons.

Aki enjoyed mixing the colors. He was very proud of himself when he made brown paint by combining red, yellow and blue.

If you are wondering where we get our supplies, the answer is Merriam Webster Bookstore, across Waltermart Makati. Acrylic paint is about PhP 50+ while canvass is somewhere between PhP 60-190 depending on the size. The small white containers are from McDo’s ketchup dispenser. Hehe

 

Anyhoo, while Aki was working on making new colors, I was prepping our strings. I simply cut several 12-inch strings and tied them to a small stick. The next step is to soak your string. We used another small stick to make sure that our strings were soaked thoroughly.

Now the fun part, drag the string all around your canvass. Aki looks bored here but this was favorite part.

Once you are happy with your painting, don’t forget to sign your name. Who knows, your painting might cost a fortune someday.

Next week, I will show you what you can do with left over paint.
