This will probably be the shortest post ever from Club Creative Studio. In today’s TNT (This-N-That) post, I want to share a creative recipe for “puffy paint”. The ingredients are from the kitchen. Before you gather your mixing supplies, take some time to also recycle and collect the containers you wish to place your “paint” in.
Any recycled plastic bottle that is also a squeeze-type container will work the best. Those plastics from items like emptied shampoo, dish soap, syrup, ketchup. mustard, honey, salad dressings and oil containers, will work fine, for example. Take note of the variety of lid tips because this mixture will be thick yet you want it to flow easily out of the tip of the container you place the paint in.
Try it for a fun, different and inexpensive project. It may be exactly what you are looking for in price, texture and technique.
Here is an example of how you can focus this technique on a fall decorative creation.
Puffy Paint Recipe:
1 Cup Salt
1 Cup Flour
1 Cup Water
Mix well, you really don’t want large lumps to form and you want it to flow out of your container tip. Have fun creating with this low-cost activity.
