A little traditional rush seat chair is given a new, ''seaside'' look! Firstly, it's given two coats of blue acrylic paint. Once the paint has dried, the chair's uprights and arm posts will be decorated using a stencil and white acrylic paint. The stencil is stuck on beforehand (using a temporary adhesive spray, this makes for an easier and better job). We then apply the paint using a stencil brush, loading the brush with just a little paint and dabbing it onto a cloth before applying. Be careful, if there's too much paint, or if the paintbrush is too wet, the motif will run. This stencil-based activity is suitable for young children from the age of 4-5 years old; but beware! you may have trouble getting them to put their brushes down..!
