The challenge for the green pepper press this month is to do wax rubbings so I decided to have an arty day with my kids and we did some wax rubbings then painted over them with watered down paint. Whenever we have an arty day we hang it all up on an arty washing line in the conservatory. I love doing all my paint backgrounds with my kids as my 3yr old is at the age when he just experiments and is not into representative art like my older children are! So the next time you want to do backgrounds have a play with paint with your kids or remember what it was like to play with paint as a child!! I have some great Celtic paving stones so we did the rubbings off them onto copier paper and coffee filters.
