Ombré Valentine Heart Using Eraser Dot Art

If you have a pencil and some paint you are all set to make this fun Ombre heart using eraser dot art for Valentine’s Day. I used these little pre-stretched canvases but you could really paint this on any surface.

Easy valentine dot heart

Start by cutting out a heart and lay the shape over your canvas.  Tape it to the canvas using painters tape so it won’t tear when you take it off.  You can also very easily just hold it down with your other hand. Squirt some pink paint onto a plate and dip and lightly press the eraser end of the pencil into the paint.

 Next, add a little bit of red to the pink and mix, continue going around the outline of the heart as many times as you would like.  Repeat adding a little more red each time to darken the paint to get the Ombre affect.
