Custom Octopus Apron by Athena Mariah LaRue

My friend gave me a blank canvas apron and requested an octopus to be put on it. I was really excited for this custom art request. Of course the day I had scheduled to start the project I happened to be on day 3 of what turned out to be a 6 day migraine. Ew!! But it is no joke that “Art is Therapy”. So although, the medicine I took that day mildly dulled my headache, I decided to go on with the project. I had just the perfect colors in my acrylic art box to paint her with. After the 6 day migraine passed I realized, “Oh no! I just painted on an apron with non washable acrylic paint!”. I guess next time I will have to wait to have a clear head to start a project! I totally could have gotten washable fabric paint or fabric pens. That was the original plan! Total brain dead move! Oh, well! When I finished the octopus I sprayed it over, and over about eight times with a acrylic spray sealant. So she will be able to wipe if off with a damp wash cloth if it gets dirty, but unfortunately I don’t think it would hold up in a washing machine. Lesson learned. But over all she was VERY happy with the finished product and promised not to cook spaghetti while wearing it.
