It is exactly what it sounds like, splatting paint to make a picture.
You will need:
One toothbrush per colour you want (We save our old brushes)
cardboard like an old cereal box
Container to hold your paint clean old yogurt containers are great
And some paper, or what ever else you would like to decorate.
Using your card board trace and then cut out stencils in the shapes you want to use.
Mix your paint with a little water in your containers. The ratio will depend on your paint, you want it to be runny, but not too watery.
Lay your stencils over the paper then load up your toothbrush with paint. Holding the loaded toothbrush over the paper use your thumb to flick the bristles, splattering the paper with paint.
Repeat until you are happy with your picture, then carefully remove the stencils and leave your paper to dry.
We also did some with stencils that allowed the shape to be splattered and the surrounds to stay white.
But I will get back to those last 2 next week 🙂
