Striped Canvas Makeup Bag

For a pouch decorated with solid colors, use a well-loaded soft-bristle brush; for one with a soft wash of color, use a mixture of paint and water on a foam brush.

HOW-TO

  1. Use tape and vinyl letters to mark off any areas on the pouch you’d like to remain unpainted. Press them firmly onto canvas to ensure a tight seal.
  2. Paint over tape and stickers as desired.
  3. Let dry completely before removing tape and stickers.
