Tole Painting

Tole painting is considered to be decorative painting. Oil painting and watercolors are painted on canvases, but tole painting can be done on nearly any surface. Furniture, plaques, keepsake boxes, clothes, and many items too numerous to mention can all be tole painted. It is simpler than oil painting because patterns are used, and it is usually done with acrylic paints. In some ways, it is like coloring in a coloring book, but instead of crayons, paints are used. Once a few simple techniques are mastered such as different types of shading, there is no end to what you can do with this skill.
