Wow! That’s what I thought when I opened the package from SuperCool Art! I was actually a little overwhelmed with the package just because I was expecting something smaller like a color book page-sized stencil.
The stencil itself is about 20″ by 30″. The canvas comes in separate pieces, the canvas and the four sides of the wood frame. The frame is very simple to put together as it’s grooved so that you can just tap it together with a rubber mallet. The canvas is easily stretched over the frame so you can staple it. The most work in assembling the canvas is really figuring out how you want to get the corners folded so they look neat and tidy!
I love that the stencil is made from a highly durable plastic and can be kept even when the initial project is done. The only thing that I had an issue with on the stencil is that there were a couple of the items that I had to use an exacto knife to cut the designs out because the plastic was tough to punch out. Once I was able to get the designs punched out it was time to design my canvas.
The paints and brushes that came with the set were awesome! They were of good quality and something that I would’ve picked out in the craft store for a project like this. The set came with white, red, blue, purple, yellow and black paints. The paints are big enough that the kids can experiment with mixing colors and make multiple canvases! It’s definitely something that is educational when you sit down with the kids!
I’m including the picture of the canvas that I painted from the stencil that was sent. I did use other paints on the canvas that I had at home and the lettering is done from stencils that I already had. For this, I painted once the kids had gone to bed because I wanted to experience the item before they did so I knew what to help them with going into the project. I loved that everything was just really simple. The only thing that I might have to help the kids with is tracing the stencils. (You wouldn’t have to trace the stencils but in order to preserve them I prefer to trace instead of just painting over the plastic.) I really can’t wait for an evening or a Saturday when I can really sit with the kids and get them to create their own canvases.
