Baby’s First Self-Portrait


Step one – Print out your favorite photo on normal paper.
I took the time to photoshop it and flip in horizontally so the transfer would be true to life.

Step two — Color over the picture with Crayola Watercolor Pencils.

Step three — Press the colored side of the portrait onto a canvas and rub to transfer the watercolor pencil strokes.

Step four — Give baby a wet paintbrush.


It looked like so much fun this mommy tried her hand at it.


We made this portrait for her Great-Grandma’s 80th birthday gift.
