All About Paint: An It’s Playtime Art Round-up

It’s another round of It’s Playtime. This week we are doing a round-up of posts relating to paint. There are so many ways your kids can play with and interact with paint! Thanks Adventures at Home for inspiring this post. Last week she had fun marbling paper with shaving cream and dye. The results are stunning!  She gives great tips on how to get the most from your project.   I also loved how she incorporated art into a larger project/activity for her children to enjoy.

Ever pin something multiple times?  I have referred to this site for Watercolor Techniques multiple times.

One day we hope to make our own alcohol dyes – love the way Artsyville made swirls with her paint!

Stamping with pencil erasers – this is SO simple!  I love the different ways LilMagoolie has fun with her kids in this project!

Remember last week’s strofoam prints?  Here is another foam art version from The Meta Picture.

Housing a Forest uses a Credit Card to create Art.  I love the idea of scraping our paint.

Another version of relief painting, from Josephine.  Her site is in French, but it is worth the visit to translate it and read her tips .  I can see these becoming terrific cards!
