Thursday Time Out For Art


One of the most fun things I have ever done  is pouring paints.  This I started when my watercolor days were front and center.  I had more fun pouring watercolors, but pouring acrylics is even more fun because acrylic is a chemical of sorts, and mixing it with other chemicals causes a reaction in the paint, and it is amazing  to watch!  I once took an experimental art class, and it was  fun mixing alcohol, acrylic, latex paints all together,  and the reaction was awesome.

Today we are pouring skins.  There are so many things you can do with a skin, it’s crazy I tell you.  I think the kids would have fun also, maybe as a together project.  The only thing is the skins have to dry before the kids can handle them.  Other than that, you’re good to go!  I think this is one of those projects that once you get into it, you won’t be able to stop!  Just make sure the flexible plastic you are pouring on will release the paint once dried.
