Puppy Love

Hi, it’s Tessa from HowToMakeArt.com here to show you a quick and simple art project that you can make to honor your pets…

Here is what you’ll need:

*Watercolor Paper

*Yasutomo Traditional Chinese Ink in Ultra Black


*Yasutomo Pale Gold Sumi-e Watercolor

*Yasutomo .07 Permawriter

Step 1: Paint your entire piece of watercolor paper black using the Yasutomo Traditional Chinese Ink in Ultra Black.  Allow to dry completely.

Step 2: Paint a picture of your pet using gesso.  My dog is white, so that made it easy, but if your dog/pet is a different color, use the gesso as a base, let dry, then add other colors on top.  Using the Pale Gold Sumi-e Ink, add some fun details like leaves and a banner.

Step 3: Add some more details with the black Permawriter pen, including the phrase, “Best Friends,” and you’re all done!

Thanks for reading,

  1. The idea of painting the paper with extra dark ink is very clever. Thank you for thinking of that!
