Painting with Watercolor and Glue

I don’t think I’v ever seen a painting of flowers that I didn’t like. Doesn’t matter if it’s a Van Gogh, or a finger painting on a refrigerator, I just can’t help but love the sight of flowers on paper. When Pentel asked me to come up with an interesting way to use their watercolors, I thought of a new take on this old technique with white glue. Not going to lie, it came out splendid! I’m getting some mats cut right now so these can be up on the walls soon.


These sorta work like coloring books. Some lady peeps came over a couple weeks ago for a weekend crafter-noon and we had a blast making these. The hard part is letting them dry. I may have attempted expedite the process by putting them in the oven. A couple may have come out over crisped. I say, it just adds artistic integrity!

If you are not condiment in your ability to doodle flowers in a vase, no problem, just scribble and fill in the holes. Like this!


Want to see how to make them yourself? Pop on over to Pentel for the step-by-step.

      I was laughing so hard, I just barely avoided snorting tea all over my keyboard. In all fairness: the keyboard is used to it
      But god, this is such a good typo. <3 <3 <3

    These are really fun for summer. They would be great for a kids’ craft camp or VBS project. I love the last one–it looks like stained glass.

    These paintings are fun and happy and glorious. I can’t wait to try this.

    What a great project! I’m not a painter but I will be giving this try, perfect for a rainy day DIY-selfer 🙂

    I look forward to trying out this project and since I am no artist I eagerly await to seeing if a bit of dried glue and water colours will convert me magicly!
