This is the perfect project to do on a cold winter's day. While it was warmer this weekend, I got my son's cold (I am sick again, I know!) so this was an easy thing to do. I even got a canvas for my son to do his own project on, minus the acrylic paint. I won't make that mistake again! He got his own water based paints. Notice the box of cold meds on the table?
Now, I simply painted the entire canvas black and then hung it to dry. I was surprised that the thing dried rather quickly, I was planning on doing the rest the next day but ended up doing it all in the same day!

What I liked about this project was when I made a spelling error and I totally screwed up drawing my bat. I just re-painted it all over again with my acrylic paint. I suggest buying two silver pens, mine was running out pretty fast.
This is the end product:

I am no artist, by all means but I felt like this guy at the end of my project:
