canvas (I picked one up at savers for $5 and painted it white)
*optional – my clip art picture below or make your own
pencil and eraser
watercolor or gouache paint (I used gouache)
1. Find an image of lips you like or just make one up yourself. I hand drew one based of an iconic lips print.
2. Trace or draw the image onto your canvas or whatever you are planning on painting the final art onto. If you want to use mine, print off the one below and make it the size you want, you can enlarge it when you print it. I had to enlarge mine 3x the size.
3. After you have your outlined image ready to go, then grab your paint and lightly outline the image. Then slowly fill it in. This is where you can let your creative juices flow….make these lips look how ever you like. I liked the lips to not look perfect with in the lines and I liked adding pink splotches around the image. Make it your own. Especially when you are like me and you have basically no artistic ability, you can make it look however you like and it will work out!
