Texture Painting

Texture Painting

Adding different textures to paint made for a very fun morning of painting not only for my kids, but me too! Love when we change something slightly and it takes a simple morning of painting to a whole new discovery of art techniques.

Ages:
2 - 9
Est. Time:
<30 mins

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. paints
  2. coffee grounds
  3. cornmeal
  4. glitter
  5. paintbrush
  6. paper
  1. We grabbed our paints and looked for a few different textures to mix them with. I loved seeing what my daughter thought would be good mix-ins....grapes, cereal...milk.

  2. We settled on cornmeal, coffee grounds and glitter and mixed each with a different color of paint.

  3. This was a first for both Emma and I and would could not stop the "oos and awes!" The paints became a whole new level of beautiful.

  4. Emma loved to see texture in her mountains and sparkle in her grass. This is a keeper!
