Step by Step Painting for Kids

The trick to getting a good splatter is to dip your brush into the water first, next dip your wet brush into your paint color, then dip it into the water again.

If you have big paper in a larger space, you can play around with shaking the brush toward the paper. For a little more control of the process, tap or flick the brush over the paper and see what magic happens. The key is that you have to aim toward the paper or your splatters will splash all over the place!

Try getting a good glob of paint in your brush and see what cool blobs, splatters, and lines of paint you can get.

Notice what happens when you splatter new colors. Do they stay the same? Do the mix? In the example I used primary colors. Try primary colors for your painting and see if you end up with the whole rainbow!

Last but not least, here are a few important tips to creating a great splatter piece:

-------------------- Advertisement --------------------


-Clean your brush between each color. If you don’t clean your brush, eventually the colors will mix together.

-Choose colors that will stand out on your paper. No matter what color paper you choose, bright and contrasting colors will give you the best results. Colors that are similar to the color of the paper won’t really show up.

-Try other tools. Aw what happens if you platter paint with an old toothbrush. Whatever took you use should be able to pick up the paint, but not absorb it. A paper towel, for instance, may not be a good choice…but now I want to do a project with paper towels!
