I got this idea from A's class at school. They had an 'art gallery' showing of their works on the last day of school term. They have been learning about water, ocean, the water cycle etc. Many of their paintings used the 'spray' technique for that watery look.
I've seen it all around the web, and have wanted to do it for a while. Don't know why I was putting it off. Lack of spray bottles? I wanted to buy empty fresh ones (But kept forgetting). However, in a let's do craft non prepared moment, I just ended up using an empty window cleaner bottle. Easy.
We placed about a cup of water with a squirt of acrylic paint, shook and spray. We cleaned it out between each colour. We all shared the one sprayer. If you have four bottles, even better, but I made do with one and so can you! lol
The girls really wanted red. I personally think it looks like a crime scene, no?
Red Red dripping everywhere.
It didn't take long for me to say okay let's move on to different colours. Looks like a murder here.
Don't know why we hadn't done it before.
This type of painting uses such little paint. Seriously One squirt of each colour.
Four blobs for painting a box and a sheet, and several squares of paper and we kept ourselves...
CLEAN THIS TIME!
