Cedric Gets the Brush off

Hello there, Cedric here with you to share a background I made. We wend out to our local town today, it has one of those super dooper bargain type shops. I picked up some combs for the exorbitant price of 99 pennies! These can serve a dual purpose; not only will they get the knots out of our fur, but they can also be used for crafting. NB, make sure you comb your fur BEFORE using them for painty effects, or you could have psychedelic fur!

For this ex'bear'iment you will need:

A comb

Some bearby wipes

Some acrylic paint in the colours of your choice

Splat a little colour onto your page, be generous, but not so generous that it spreads too far. Now, pick up your comb and create

Zooom, oooh what fun.

Add more paint, and this time wipe it over your page with a bearby wipe to spread your colours.

Pick up your comb once more, and really scrape it through those colours, ths way, that way, any way you choose, have fun and see what happens.

I love this effect

You can scrape a line through your criss crosses, for a change.

Just play then play some more,

This is my finished background, I may add another colour, or start creating some art on top of this. I just love the way I have so many textured effects from one small comb.

With love from the bears.
