Make Art Not War

Express your love through abstract expressionism with fine artist Jeremy Brown's bold idea for making one-of-a-kind art. Each kit allows couples to capture the beauty of intimacy in a new and elegant way by bringing the canvas to the bedroom.

Your choice of romantic red or bold black non-toxic paint takes shape on a white cotton canvas in the form of pure love. What's left is a striking painting that leaves a tangible piece of your bond to hang and celebrate for years to come. An original newlywed gift or an exciting idea to capture an anniversary through a shared masterpiece. Made in the USA.

Kit includes plastic sheeting, white cotton canvas, black non-toxic and washable red or black paint, disposable slippers, body scrubber.

Add an additional DIY dimension to the experience by stretching the completed painting yourself with the canvas stretcher kit. All you need is a staple gun, book with a right-angle corner, the stretcher bar set, and 20 minutes.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

Made from
plastic, canvas, non-toxic marker
Measurements
Canvas: 54" x 41"
Notes
Once completed, the canvas can be taken to your local art store to be stretched and framed, or stretched at home with the optional stretcher kit. Canvas is not pre-stretched, however, the material will absorb the paint, so that when the canvas is stretched in order to be framed, your artwork will not be distorted. There is a non-absorbent backing on the canvas, which will prevent paint from going all the way through.
Paint takes 3–4 hours to dry, depending on thickness.
Paint is non-toxic and washable. Easily scrubs off of skin and out of hair with soap and water.

        Comments about LOVE IS ART KIT:

        We weren't prepared for a couple of things when using this product, that I thought I'd share for future users. 1) when you put the paint on the product, be prepared to start "rolling around" pretty quickly. The paint dries fairly quickly, and if you don't start smooshing around the paint then you'll have some dried paint spots.
        2) The paint is NOT easy to wash off your skin. It's not awful but be prepared for lots of scrubbing and residual paint on your towel.

        Overall it was a fun activity and I'd recommend it to a friend.

        If you're clumsy like myself, be mindful of your surroundings while covered in paint! Drop cloth is included which helped very much to save the carpet in my apartment. PLUS,it's like a naughty little secret to know how and who created the one of a kind piece of art hanging in my home.

        Very prompt delivery. Package arrived completely unharmed given the busy holiday season for deliveries.

            I was quite hesitant at first to purchase this gift but when we finally put it to use it was a lot of fun (sure it was messy but we enjoyed it). Only problem we had was the drop cloth ripped and we got black paint on our beige carpet. Good thing about the paint, it's water soluble and came up no problem with water and 409. The only suggestion I have to people who haven't used their kit yet is to make several swirls over the canvas. If you concentrate the majority of the paint in one area it'll make more of large spot. I don't recommend spelling the word love, it created a big solid black area.

                    It is hard to think of something a man would like for Valentine's day...except the obvious! I wasn't sure about this at first, but once we dove in it was REALLY fun!! I thought the final product would just be butts, hands, and feet; but we got a beautiful masterpiece!!

                    The idea is unique but can't some just go buy body paint and do this themselves? $60.00 is way too expensive.

                    Cassie, UncommonGoods Community Moderator

                    Thanks for the question, Megan! Body paint is just one component of this kit. It also includes a white cotton canvas, poly sheeting (to protect your floor)disposable slippers (to wear on the way to the tub) and body scrubber.

                    OMG. I change my vote! After reading the cleverly written copy, this just seems so.... gross. I think that if this item were pitched as a way for a couple to work together on a piece of art in a more conventional way (like with finger-paints or paint brushes) rather than covering themselves with body paint and doing the nasty on a piece of canvas, it would sell muuuuuch better. Ick! My skin is crawling just thinking about what actually went into making the piece featured here.

                    It does seem like it is priced a bit high, expecially because some people might know where to find these things themselves to do this. It does seem gross to sell it the way that it is, but I bet people would end up doing it the kinky way even if it wasn't sold like this. Do like that it comes with more than just the canvas and paint.

                    After reading all the comments about it, it would be a great thing to have (if it doesn't ruin your bed, floor, and shower). Just imagine handing this painting down to your grandchildren. Who's gonna explain the painting?

                    I saw this in a movie once...and you don't need the kit. Go to any art supply store and pick up non toxic paint. That way you wont be limited to one color!!

                    $59.99 for some paper and black paint? The purpose of the kit is absurd and no way you can get your "art" to look anything like the picture without skill.

                    Bring the price down and I think it would be a winner.

                    I like any gift that encourages the recipient to have hot, messy sex.

                    It's a cool idea but I probably wouldn't buy it. I'm sure there are those that would love it though.

                    What the heck? Sounds like this is art made by rolling around in paint then onto a canvas.. really weird.

                    Clever! Throw in a bottle of wine and I'm sold.

                    I kinda like it, but for 59.99 when you can go to wal-mart and buy non-toxic kids paint and a white sheet or cloth for all about 20 bucks! And I could see this for couples with out kids, but this would not be somthing I would hang in my house and my kids ask me when they are older what it is. I can hear them now......Oh gross....lol

                    just plain weird, which is fine, but if you're going to be weird, do it with more than just black and for less than $60

                    Creativity is good, but not classy enough, especially for the price.

                    It would be funny to see how the painting changes throughout the years. I think it is fun.

                    Would be better if it had colors and...a squirt gun instead. Sounds very messy.

                    Strange. Not a bad idea, but not something I would go to Uncommon Goods for...
