Blogger Project - Involve the kids and make something unique with your favorite colors. This DIY canvas art project is described by Carol Heppner on her blog. Check out how she and her niece did this project here.

Step 1: Protect your work area with drop cloths or newspaper, to prevent overspill.

Step 2:
Pour equal amounts of Testors Marbling Medium and an acrylic paint color into a disposable cup.  Use one cup for each color. Gently stir each color with a stir stick to make swirls.

Step 3:
Pour the mixtures, one at a time, onto the canvas.

Step 4:
Tilt the canvas to spread the paint until the desired effect is achieved. 

Step 5:
Let your artwork dry for about an hour.
