Happy Father's Day

Yesterday I took my sons to Plaster Fun Time to paint something for for their dad for Father's Day.  My oldest son painted the 1st one.  My 3 year old painted the computer one.  I painted the words on the screen for him, after he told me what he wanted it to say.  Then I painted the octopus magnet.

Even though I let my 3 year old pick out the colors for this, I did say no to certain colors that would make it look muddy when mixed (like yellow with the purple).

When painting, don't forget that you can mix colors to create a new color.  You can also use different painting techniques like dry brushing.  I dry brushed purple over the blue on the octopus.
