How To Create A Silhouette Painting


Step #1- Choose the silhouette you want to paint! These are easy to find for many things simply by searching a silhouette on your desired search engine and choosing images.
*Save the image to your pictures folder.
*Open a word document
*Adjust the page size to the size of your canvas.
*Insert your chosen image
*Stretch to fit the size you desire if necessary
*Print page
Step #2-Cut the image from the paper carefully.
*Tape together your beginning cut on edge of paper
*Place rolls of tape around the detailed edges of your picture and press the cutout onto your canvas. 
*Attach your pattern to the canvas by taping all 4 edges down. 
PAINTING THE IMAGE:
*Paint across the paper inward towards the uncovered canvas. (Never paint towards the pattern edge as this will scoop paint underneath your pattern.)
*Paint around all edges of your pattern.
Step #3- Carefully remove the pattern.
*Touch up any uncovered spots and complete your painting, adding any finishing touches that you desire. You may also be interested in:
