Art: Pouring Paint

A day off from school, rain, & a bit of a cough means it is the perfect day to finally try Pouring Paint!

First we set up some large cardboard boxes on the floor (easiest way to contain the mess with 2 kids), & got our supplies ready. A & S each picked 3 colors to start with.

We had 1 cup for each color. Then we added Pouring Medium to each cup & stirred it well.

Then in a new cup we poured a little bit of each color in alternating order.

We started with S’s pour and realized we needed more pouring medium to make it flow better. Here is S’s pour.

I liked how it looked with the white, but he wanted to do some paint brush painting as well, so…. why not.

Next we did A’s pour & I love how it turned out.

Then she of course wanted to keep painting, so I gave her my canvas & let her go to town! (I need more medium before I can do my own.)
