Hello lovelies, I hope you are enjoying your summer. Every since I have seen the water gun art paint at Michael’s I have been wanting to try it. We decided to make our own paint mixture in a squirt gun. I bought dollar store water guns and we filled them up about 1/3 full with washable kids paint and then added water. If you don’t add enough paint, the colors are too diluted and if you add too much paint it won’t squirt out so experiment with the amounts. I set up a huge tarp on the ground with canvases leaning on chairs and paper lining the chairs to catch the drips. It was so much fun!
We also got some stencils out with spray inks (much more messy but the colors are so vibrant). The results were gorgeous.
When the kids were done painting we cleaned everything up and then I started spraying the tarp with the hose to get the paint off. We ended up putting shaving cream and soap on it, added water balloons and turned it into a slippy slide. Hours of creative fun outside. I would love to hear how you are getting outside and getting creative.
Adults can do this too! I lead an adult painting birthday party outside and was so impressed with the paintings! They did an abstract background with spray inks, paper and paint. They then added sayings or words on top. My heart is so full being able to create outside with such lovely ladies. To learn how to use spray inks in your paintings check out my You Tube channel.
