Templates, Patterns & Ideas

If you want to produce your own, step-by-step tutorials or need artwork inspiration, then DecoArt have a great project library.  Whether you have never painted or have some experience, there are hundreds of patterns, templates and guides to help you achieve a wonderful piece of art.  Click here for the canvas projects library/tutorials/downloads link (use the drop down menu for "surface" and click on canvas.  Click on the individual links or images for templates/patterns and more information.  Here is the link to the images shown on the right - Love Birds in a Heart Tree tutorial and pattern.

Simply trace your pattern/template/download or artwork onto the canvas using our graphite paper (available in white or grey).  Graphite transfer sheets/carbon papers are ideal for design text and pattern transfer. Graphite paper also known as ARTIST TRANSFER PAPER is an easy and efficient way for artists to transfer their images onto surfaces like canvas wood bisque or paper. Unwanted lines are simply removed with an eraser. Graphite transfer paper works like carbon paper. Simply place the sheet of graphite paper on top of your surface and underneath the pattern you want to transfer. Make a copy by pressing hard over the lines of the top copy image.
