Experiment with a wonderful palette of colour, from strong and brilliant, to soft subtle hues.Using simple techniques, design your own stencil of animal prints, tribal motifs, fish, bird pattern and texture. Paint cascading flowers, real leaves, rag roses, dots and stripes.Floor cloths make wonderful place mats, pet mats, boot trays etc. and ca be used everywhere drips "happen", since they can be wiped clean.
