➛Greenleaf Blueberry Paint-It-Yourself
A Paintable is a printable project for you to paint yourself! In this Paintable, you will get to create a watercolor painting of Magic Paint Tubes. Step-by-step instructions will guide you through painting in your paint tubes - what comes out of the tubes is all up to you! (The picture above is just one of the painting layout options with one project idea.) Detailed renderings of a series of paint tubes are provided (you get to skip right over that step!) in a printable version, along with step-by-step instructions, extra info, and more. All you need to do is paint in the color and use your imagination to complete the painting!
Just print, then paint!

**The Paint Tubes Drawings are intended to be printed on watercolor paper (details below).**
This project is designed to be enjoyed in little bits over several days or over a long, slow afternoon or day. The included packet is packed with info and instructions to help guide you through the process of creating your Magic Paint Tubes painting. However, you are encouraged to use your own creativity! Relax, enjoy, and savor the process.
The painting itself includes some fine detail. This project should be approached with patience and a relaxed attitude. Any mistakes should be welcomed as learning experiences. One of the upsides of using a printable is that you can easily start over! No labor-intensive drawing is going to be ruined!
**Again, this painting is small and includes fine details.**
The Magic Paint Tubes Drawings:
On the Magic Paint Tubes Drawing print-outs, you are presented with an assortment of small paint tubes as a faint printed graphite drawing. Since you are printing this file on watercolor paper (more info below), you get to paint directly on the printed drawing!
Two of the drawings are formatted for 8.5"x11" paper, while an additional sheet contains two separate drawings formatted to 5" x 7" size, with a rectangle delineating this measurement around each for easy cutting/tearing when you are ready to frame your painting!
I suggest you use a large sheet (20cm x 20cm) of Arches 90 lb. Cold Press Watercolor Paper. It can be cut down to six individual 8.5 inch x 11 inch pieces of paper.
**Watercolor paper is commonly available in 140 lb. weight, however this heavy of paper will not go through most printers. Make sure you are using a 90 lb. weight watercolor paper.**
1) Once you have cut your watercolor paper to size, load it into your printer in such a way that the more textured side of the paper is the side on which your images will be printed. (Cold Press watercolor paper is more textured on one side of the paper than the other. The more textured side is intended for your painting surface.)
2) Make sure to print on on a Black & White or Grayscale setting. I have had excellent results with my Epson Workforce 2660.
3) Only the Magic Paint Tubes Drawings need to be printed on watercolor paper. When printing these, make sure to only select pages 11-13 to print so that you don't waste your watercolor paper. Print dialog boxes (where you make your color and page selections) are each different depending on your computer, operating system, and document openers - but you should be able to select specific pages to print.
I suggest that you print out your Informational Packet first. Give it a read-through to start getting acquainted with the project. It contains information on materials, technique, step-by-step instructions, terms, resources, etc. Then go ahead and print Magic Paint tubes on your watercolor paper.
**Please note that these files are all in English. I unfortunately cannot assist with translations (you wouldn't want me to anyway!)**
***Again, this Item Listing is a DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ONLY. No supplies or materials are included in this listing. Digital Downloads are available after purchase, nothing will be shipped through the mail.***
PLEASE NOTE: This digital download is intended for *personal use only*. Please do not copy, reproduce, sell, or distribute. Yes, this includes finished paintings. (The finished projects make wonderful gifts and can easily be framed to hand on the wall.) One per person, please! An immense amount of work, time, and energy went into creating this project for you and I would love to be able to make more! Please use only as intended.
If it helps, just think of this project like purchasing a nice cup of coffee. It is priced similarly! If you and your friend go to the coffee shop together, you likely don't share the same cup. You each buy your own drink or one of you treats the other to her own cup. Thanks for understanding. Cheers! ☕
