Create this simple and loving Welcome using acrylic paints. The finished project is square.

Try your crafty hands at acrylic painting. Paint the base background color of a mustard or gold. Then transfer the image of the cats onto a canvas or wood, watercolor paper or even a cloth base. In the craft project Ceramcoat paints were used. You can use most any quality waterbased acylic paints. Paint either yellow or orange on the background cat first. When dry, Then paint black for the black cat. The eyes for both cats can be done using a fine tip liner brush. You will want to start by painting the shape of the eye in black, let dry, then paint a yellow or green for the eyeball on top of the eye – leaving an edge of black showing the outline of the eye. When the eye ball color is dry, paint a black pupil on the cats eye to finish. Use the fine liner brush to finely paint white or light gray cat whiskers. Paint triangle noses and finish the cats mouth. Finish the black cat into a Tuxedo cat by dabbing white on the paws. Use a 1/2″ square brush to sweep (in one stroke) the white chest of the cat. Try painting using any of these acrylic painting techniques by practicing on scrap paper. Get the feel of the stroke and the brush. Remember, let it be fun and relaxing to paint. If you make a mistake, either wipe the paint off, or you can let the paint dry and paint right over the mistake.
