Meet the old crayon bucket. It originally held foam stickers, and became the dumping ground for all drawing things.
I went to the craft store and found this great wooden bucket – with sturdy latch and handle – for just a few bucks. I love to woodburn (don’t know what woodburning is? Find out here!) so I decided to make it cute and give it a title with woodburning and paint.
First, I sketched my design on the wood with pencil. The little face on the front was patterned after the first picture that my daughter drew of her daddy – and I thought it was cute.
The back has tracings of the girl’s hands.
Then I woodburned over my pencil lines. Here are pictures after that step.
Using acrylic paint, very watered down, I painted the sections in bright colors, painted the crayons to match, and painted the hands in contrasting colors.
