How to Make a Camouflage Dinosaur Canvas
Get your kids involved in decorating their space! These dinosaur camouflage canvases are a simple way to introduce toddlers to creating art. Customize yours with any silhouette and all of your child's favorite colors.
Draw or print image
Find an image that would look nice as a silhouette and print or draw it onto a full page label.
If desired paint the canvas a solid color, or leave it white. Once dry, cut out the silhouette and stick it onto the canvas. Be sure to press the edges down firmly to seal it.
Paint around silhouette
With as many or as few colors as you want, use a paint brush, foam brush or even your fingers to create camouflage dashes. If using more than 1 color, paint 1 color at a time and let dry in between to prevent mixing. Be sure to paint all the way around the outline of the silhouette so it will have a clean line of definition.
Once the paint is completely dry, remove the label. Touch up any spots where paint may have gotten under the label.
