exploring recyclable art...

:: soapbox pinwheels ::
think twice before throwing these treasures away!
Soapboxes... 
they are adorable in size, pose as great mini canvases, hold up well under stress,
and are perfect to paint on.

materials needed:
soapboxes
acrylic paints
collage paper scraps
matte medium 
tacky glue 
painter tape 
Exploring is fun!

  2. These look great, April! The black sides make the colors on top even more vibrant. I was going to ask what kind of soap you use to get such great boxes, but I see "Dove" peeking through the paint. Who knew they could look so great with just a layer of paint!

  6. This made me smile. I have a stack of soap boxes that I've collapsed..just waiting for inspiration. Why didn't I think of little mini canvases? That smell good too! What a genius idea!
