Imagine painting your own beach chair with a beach scene! You can have a lot of fun with store bought furniture that has canvas fabric. By substituting Jacquard's Textile Paints with Dye-Na-Flow, Lumiere, or Neopaque, some different effects could have amazing results. All paints can be mixed together and all heat fix with the same method.
1. Remove canvas from the chair and lay flat on a protected surface.
2. On two separate palettes or plates, put a small amount of paint. One palette is for the sky and water colors and the other is for the sand colors.
3. Divide the canvas horizontally into 3 sections. We went about halfway up for the sand, up another 8 inches for the water, and the remainder for the sky. Each section will blend into the other so exact dimensions are not important.
4. Paint the canvas by using loose horizontal strokes. Load the brush or roller by dabbing it a little in the colors you want to use in that area. The water can be painted darker near the "shore" and fade as it moves towards the horizon. You can use a sponge for the sky to simulate clouds.
