Paint Blending

This art exploration came from the book I Made It! Process-Oriented Art for Kids.

We squeezed small amounts of tempera paint onto construction paper.

After covering the paint with a piece of wax paper, the girls used their hands to blend the paint.

Once the paint was blended the girls peeled off the wax paper to reveal their design.

Lauren enjoyed using a paint scrapper to add texture to her designs.


  1. I love this idea because my son hates to finger paint. He does not like sticky hands. This allows him to finger paint without getting messy!

  2. This looks like a lot of fun...I think we will be trying this really soon!

  3. I'd love to try this thanks for sharing! (less mess.. i hope)
