So Mom came for a visit two weeks ago and taught us Georgia Art Chix a cool new art lesson.

We made painted floorclothes. Very simple to do and so much fun. Simple purchase vinyl from your local Home Depot, cut to desired size. Paint with one heavy coat of Gesso. Once the gesso is dry, draw off your favorite design and begin painting with acrylic paints. We used student grade paints by Dick blick. Once your paint is good and dry spray with a clear acrylic paint to make sure nothing runs. Then paint or roll at least three coat of polycrylic on the cloth. This will seal the design and ensure that your can wash it. Take a look at some of the design my creative at Art Chix came up with.
