I painted these! And it took a few hours, but it was fun. I found an old kit for painting butterfly window clings, and I just decided to tackle it and make some colorful butterflies for my window.

What was interesting was how with this kind of paint, there’s a scooper tool. You scoop the paint on to each section, then use the pointy end to spread it out evenly. There was a paint-by-number guide in the instruction manual. I took a little bit of creative liberty in adding blue to the brown-and-red butterfly, but I probably should have just left it as is; these kit people seem to know what they’re doing. 🙂

You have to wait for it to dry for at least 24 hours, and then take them off the paper backing, carefully cut them out, and voila! You have a lovely clingaling.

I’m giving a couple of these to a friend who loves butterflies, and the rest are colorfying my living room in the mornings!
