Wrapping Without Waste 4: Painted Pringles Tubes
Welcome to Day 4 of Wrapping Without Waste. Today we will make Painted Pringles Tubes to use as gift tubes.
- empty Pringles tube/can
- thin cloth for cleaning tube
- white acrylic paint & paint brush (or spray paint)
- old newspapers
- acrylic paint (different colours)
Step 1- Clean Pringles tube: Dampen a thin towel in soapy water and use to clean tube. Dry tube using a towel or hair dyer. (Step 0 should be: eat all the Pringles inside ASAP,hahaha)
Step 2– Paint tube, either by brushing or spray painting.
If using a brush, put your hand in the tube while painting. It gives you more control and ease. Allow to dry completely.
Step 3– Paint a masterpiece. It’s nice to keep your colours to a minimum, 4 to 5. Use brush, palette knife or Q-tips to create a unique work of art.
|I wanted to make an actual sample for you but I don’t have much time to work on them this week. So I thought I’ll just demonstrate a point by cropping a digital image of a painting. Image Sources for Floral painting & Heart Painting
Note: As you can see – no need to make a name tag as you can already include the name of the recipient in your painting.
And don’t forget to slide in your present!!!
And there you go – you can be
