Paint dipping chairs, cabinets or spoons has always been popular; but an entire artwork paint-dipped requires an act of courage.

This technique is a very interesting DIY. All we need to do is take any of our old framed painting and make a horizontal, vertical or slant division on the painting. Ideally we should dip it in a tub of paint. But why waste so much precious paint? So we paint the desired area with thin paint in a vertical motion repeatedly to give a dipped feel!


Is it whimsical, or well curated or just child's play? It's worth trying out though!
