mini paint roller
empty toilet paper roll
a cut out strip of texture
*this technique can also be used with a large roller and empty paper towel roll for larger art pieces.
Secure some paper or non-slip drawer liver around your paint roller. You'll need to do this so that the toilet paper tube will fit securely. Glue the cut out texture strip around the empty toilet paper roll, textured part facing out. Pull the t.p. roll over the paint roller like this...
Roll your textured tube through paint, just as you would if you were to paint a wall.
Roll it out onto your canvas or surface.

I hope you'll enjoy this fun and thrifty way to create some texture in your artwork. It's not near the mess and it really is fun to just roll on. Bam! your done.
I was so excited with myself after coming up with this a few months ago that I was convinced i should have it patent . I recently went in the art supply store and much to my dismay I found a similar item marked at $12 for two tubes and a brush. Man, another dream gone:)
If I could only get organized!
