Make your own dipped paintings

Upcycle an old piece of art

If you’ve got an old painting that’s simply gathering dust in your attic or basement, think twice before getting rid of it. It would be such a shame to let it go when you can use edding permanent spray to transform a faded work of art into a stylish showpiece! The trend colours in the spray range – neo mint, champagne gold, classy mauve and pastel rose – look brilliant together and will give your wall a unique, contemporary feel. And with more than 35 shades available, your favourite colour’s sure to be there. What’s more, edding spray paints have exceptional covering power and are quick-drying and durable. We took our inspiration for this design from Irish artist Oliver Jeffers’ Dipped Paintings series
