Here is a step by step of how we made the Eiffel Tower Canvas.
Paint (We used acrylic)
Mastic (Tile Grout)
Mod Podge or Matte Medium
First, I found a picture of the Eiffel Tower that I liked. After I printed it out I traced the outline on the canvas. You could use any shape or object that you like.
Next I started applying Mastic (tile grout) that I got from our local home improvement store to add texture.
My idea was to have the kids decorate the inside of the Eiffel Tower with scrapbook paper so I just textured the outside which will later be painted.
To frame the tower I traced the outline with the grout using a cake decorating bag.
You need at least 24 hours for the grout to harden.
Before the birthday party I pre-ripped little strips of scrapbooking paper for the girls to pick from. To apply the paper to the canvas you first need to do a layer of mod podge directly to the canvas. After arranging the paper strips where you want them on the canvas you should apply another coat of mod podge as a top layer.
Finally, the last step is to paint the textured canvas.
Ooh la la!
I love how they all turned out!
