Heart-Shaped Painted Wedding Fans
More Paint Pour Projects:
While searching for canvas panels for projects, I came across these adorable heart shaped panels which measure 6" across. I wanted to make wedding fans with them but worried that I could not paint both sides. Usually the reverse side of canvas panels are thin paper that might bubble up if it came in contact with paint. That was not the case with these panels,as I found after trying the paint pour technique on them. Oversized wavy craft sticks were the perfect handles for my colorful wedding fans. Keep your wedding guests cool with this project. Make yours in your wedding colors and add a personalized message on the small attached paper heart.

step 8 - Slowly tilt the canvas, allowing the paint colors to marble. Expect that paint will drip off the sides. Don’t rush this tilting process. The patterns will continue to change and blend, you may even see colors appear that were hidden. You can also create interesting patterns by tilting the canvas in a swirling motion. If paint doesn’t reach some edges, pour a bit more paint in those areas or dab a craft stick into paint drips and touch them lightly to the spots. Continue tilting until you are happy with the effect.
step 11 - Cover unused paint until the canvas and stick are thoroughly dry.
step 12 - Pour paint onto the flip side of the canvas and the wavy stick. If wet paint should drip to the first side of the canvas or stick, wipe it off with a damp paper towel.
step 13 - When you’re done tilting, run a gloved finger along the edges of both items to cover bare canvas spots.
