But First: How to transfer your design onto a canvas

Before you get started, you’ll need to gather your supplies! Here’s a quick list to have on hand: 

  1. The door hanger template of your choosing
  2. 1/2 inch flat tip brush
  3. Filbert tip brush
  4. Liner brush
  5. Artistro Acrylic Paint Markers
  6. Sponge Pouncer
  7. Posca Paint Pens 
  8. Canvas
  9. Graphite paper (or carbon paper) 

The next step is easy — all you need to do is print out your template and trace it onto your canvas using graphite paper. From there, you can fill in the lines with your paint.
