Painting corn???

Yep! At our paint in Saturday, we painted corn on a rolling pin. I thought it would be time consuming but it wasn't. We had so much fun at our meeting. The ladies all talk and paint, eat and talk some more. Each painters corn turned out different, some had small kernels and some had large, some had more of the same colors and some had 7 or 9 different colors. Of course, we had a really wonderful teacher, she is the kind of person who never seems unhappy. I haven't varnished my corn yet, thought I would try a picture first. This project was in the Decorative Painter last year. For those of you who are unfamiliar with that, it is the magazine members of the Society of Decorative Painters receive four times a year. A really beautiful magazine (coffee table type) that has multiple articles and painting projects in it. You can check out their website at

RE: Painting corn???

WOW Great corn!!! I love painting on rolling pins. I think I still might have a couple old ones I picked up at Goodwill a while back. Never thought about "corn" what a unique piece. I LOVE it. Isn't "group" painting so much fun?! Thanks for sharing.

Happy Painting,

That's so different, I really think it turned out great. I love the little corn hairs, the pretty kernels and it's amazing how it resembles an ear of corn.

Thanks for sharing your project with all of us. Punk

RE: Painting corn???

How fun and colorful. Glad you had such a good time painting this. Sorry I'm so late posting, we are traveling and the WIFI connections have been slow until now. Seems to be really good at the RV park we will be staying at for the next few weeks, so I'll try to post more quickly. Luvs
