Remember what these looked like when I first got them? You can see it here. Since I knew I was going to use a lighter colored fabric for my sister's blotter, I wanted to make sure the car parts don't show through. I primed the entire thing before adhering the orange and white graphic print.
For the Piggie, I painted it with cheapie Joann's acrylic paint, then coated it with Mod Podge.
I wasn't too concerned about the spreading the Mod Podge evenly since it all dries clear anyways.
The initial intent was to use this for her watercolor painting, but I'd have to varnish it to be water proof. So, for the time being, it will simply be for her to draw and use as an over sized place mat.
