What You Will Need

1. Paint and brushes

3. Piece of wood
4. Clothepins
5. Hooks
6. Sandpaper

Step 1
Cut piece of wood to size you want. Sand the wood.

 Step 2
Paint base color that you want. On this example it was off-white. Let dry. Also paint clothespins.

In this example, light blue. Run it over the board. The color will stick to where the board was sanded. The more you wet the paper towel the less it will stick (or highlight the secondary color).
