Everyone wants to save money. Don't you? Well, painting your own, color matched art can be a lot easier than you might think!
Usually picture that you want for your room will have an outrageous price. Or maybe you just can't find anything that matches your new color scheme?
There is a simple way to paint your own pictures and save a fortune. Not only will you save money but you can exactly match your décor as well. Use this easy method and you can make your own unique pictures.
First decide what size of picture you want and buy a suitable stretched canvas. It needs to be suitable for acrylic paints which are water based. Some canvases are only suitable for oil based paints, and will not work for this project.
It will be easiest to choose an abstract theme. Abstract art will look good in most rooms. You can include shapes from any of patterns in furnishings. Use a basic shape rather than trying to copy shape in detail. For example, just use a simple leaf outline rather than showing every vein in leaf as it is depicted in curtains.
Any water based paints used in room can be included in picture for a perfect match. Otherwise take along a color sample of your paint or wallpaper, as well as any fabric samples when you go to buy paints for picture.
I like to use acrylic paints as they come in a large range of colors. It is easy to adapt colors to match those that are already in room. Also acrylics come in a range of metallic colors which can look stunning.
Another option is to use tester pots of interior paint. This can be an economic way of buying colors for your picture - as long as paints are water based.
