Here's a step by step version of my DIY tote bag process:
|readying my materials|
For this specific design, materials needed are a paint palette, bright paint tubes, a paintbrush, masking tape, and lastly, the canvas bag.
Stick masking tape on the spaces that will not be painted on as a border for your bag
Choose your preferred colors and start painting on the canvas bag
Tear off the tape when you've painted all blank spaces
Ta-dah! Not so bad for my first time!
- Place a board inside the bag to prevent paint from staining the back part of the bag
- Make sure the amount of paint you mix for a certain colour is enough to sustain the whole painting process
