Love Love Love the sock monkeys!

I have no idea how she does it, but am very interested in this screenprinting idea! I can't afford the $272 to have my kiddos names done.

I'm sorry I'm not much help either. I did a letter with polka dots and used the sponge doppers and went over it with a paint brush to smooth out bubble...
....Her stuff is amazing! I too am in love with the sock monkey one! I'm totally jealous of her painting talent!

After looking at the large image, I think she's using a stencil for some of it, and for the small dots she's just loading a brush up, dotting lighting on the wood, and pulling straight up. For the white peaked dots, she's probably using puff paint or an acrylic artist paint.

I am guessing here..........but it looks like pencil erasers and q-tips were used??

I would say too that she used a stencil then went back and filled in using the end of the brush. just a guess though. Amazing work by that seller though.

if your not much of an painter you can use deco-podge chose any wall paper you want and just hodge podge it on-

I`ve been painting for 15 years now......and I can tell you
She`s got talent!!!
It looks soo easy but go`ve got to try it to know how difficult it is to paint soo much tiny details.
I think her work is worth the money!!!!
