    Thanks so much! Penny

      Hi Penny,

      Thanks for your enquiry.
      The paints we use are just a standard acrylic paint.
      You can purchase these at any craft store.
      We hope you enjoy this project as much as we did!

    I was wondering how you got the dots and stripes on your canvas? Did you use the back of the paint brush? How big is your canvas to?

    • Amber

      Hi Cassandra,
      The canvas size is 30cm x 30cm
      We did use the end of a paintbrush to do the dots but the stripes were hand painted.

      We hope this helps

    I am planning this activity for a birthday party (for 6 children or fewer). Will the small bottles of paint (similar to the bottles in your picture) be enough for 6 8×8 stretched canvases? Thanks so much!

    • Amber

      Hi Jennifer, That sounds like a fun idea!
      I think you should be ok with that amount out paint.
      But just to be sure, perhaps purchase some bigger bottles incase.

    What did you wrap the canvas around? I have a class of 15.

      Hi Crystal,

      I purchased the canvas already attached to the frame.
      You can find these at a cheap store or a craft store.
      I hope this helps.
