Create with child-like freedom and feel a tactile connection to your work, with Erica’s beautiful finger-painted blooms!
Starting a painting from scratch can be intimidating, right? This easy way of creating takes the stress out of painting, no paint brush required, just your fingers! This is a really simple way to make what I call ‘blobby roses’ and they are really quick too. It also uses minimal materials.
More than anything it is about having fun with your materials, not over-thinking the process and just seeing where the work takes you. It doesn’t matter if it doesn’t come out exactly like mine, it is your own creation and should be exclusive to you, as long as you have fun above all!
