We have know art works of rats who create tiny abstract paintings with their feet, but these pets aren’t the only animals with artistic talent. Dog owners have recently discovered that their dogs make great co-creators. People online have been painting their dogs’ feet with a paintbrush and washable paint, stamping their paws onto paper, and turning the cute prints into beautiful flower paintings.
The idea came from a woman named LJ, who decided to paint the paws of her dog named Biscuit. The cute prints looked like the shape of a flower, so LJ decided to fill in the stems and leaves with a paintbrush to complete the picture. The idea took off online, and there’s even an Instagram hashtag (#dogpawpainting) introducing the craft. You may learn about it easily without going out. The finished works not only look pretty enough to hang on your wall, but they’re a lot of fun to make and a great experience for you and your dog to build a close relationship.
Feeling inspired to make your own paw print flower paintings? You’ll need washable paint(try different colors), a paintbrush, paper, and of course—your dog’s paw. Check out some paw-print paintings for inspiration. Hope you will enjoy them.
