pinterest challenge #2

So today I completed Pinterest Challenge #2

We decided to this elephant. I have it pinned on my craft board.

This is what she created:



I call this one a success.

I had black acrylic paint and white acrylic paint.  We mixed it up on a paper plate with a brush.  We did a total of 5.  The first 2 were kind of a trial-and-error for us. Once she really got the hang of pressing her hand on the paper, all went well. It dried all day. Then she glued on a googly eye.  Then she used a black Sharpie to make the tail, ears, trunk lines and feet.

They are going in the  mail tomorrow morning to the family. I’m sure they will be loved!

Then, 11 hours later – this is what we have:


Hmmm, other than being a bit shinier – nothing.  I was so disappointed in this.  I took a cloth and tried to scrub off the hardwater deposits afterwards, but that didn’t do anything. So, I did it, but it was no bueno. I am going to unpin this from my board.  Yes, I said it, I am going to unpin it.

But, challenge number 1 is done.  Lesson learned…
