Another idea from Pinterest, of course.
– Paint (we used acrylic)
– Paintbrushes / cotton swabs
– Spray enamel
I picked green and blue paint for the wings and painted Navy’s feet (one at a time) green. Clean, repeat with blue.
While the butterfly wings dried, I gave Navy a quick bath.
I started using a small paintbrush for the bodies, but switched to a cotton swab because it gave smoother lines.
Using another swab, I painted Navy’s name (which is really Nicholas) on the canvas.
That dried for an hour or so, then I sprayed it with the enamel, which dries in 10 minutes, but will need to be in a well-ventilated area for a couple of hours.
Note: I tried to find the original, but the website appears to be shut down, and the company didn’t respond to a Facebook message, either.
