Pinecone Painting

Pinecone Painting


To add a surprise detail to your next painting
project, try using a pine cone dipped in paint as your paint brush. Find a
sturdy, unblemished pine cone in your backyard (most regions have pine trees) or at a craft
store, and make sure to wash it so that no debris or loose dirt is on the
cone. After letting it dry completely, take a pair of rubber gloves and hold the pine
cone on its side, rolling it into a shallow plate of paint. You can use acrylic or latex
paint – depending on your project. Let the access paint drip from the cone and then
roll it onto the surface you are looking to texturize. (Tip: try this technique a
few times on a scrap piece of paper first to get the hang of it!). Continue adding the
paint in any pattern you see fit. And simply throw out your pine cone once your
décor is completed!
