Make Your Own DIY Finger Paints
Making your own finger paints is a fun and easy way to get creative with your kids! All you need are a few simple ingredients that you probably already have around the house.
To make your own finger paints, start by mixing together 1/2 cup of flour with 1/2 cup of water in a bowl. Then, add 1/4 cup of sugar and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Next, add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and stir until the mixture is smooth.
Now it’s time to add some color to your finger paints! To do this, simply mix together a few drops of food coloring with 1 tablespoon of white vinegar. Add as much or as little food coloring as you like to achieve the desired shade. Once you’re happy with the color, pour the mixture into small containers and let your kids get creative!
Simple Ombre Artwork
If you’re using paint, start by applying your lightest color to the top half of your paper or canvas. Then, working in small sections, add a slightly darker shade of paint to the bottom half of each section. Use a clean brush or sponge to blend the two colors together in the middle. Continue working down the paper or canvas, adding progressively darker shades of paint until you reach your desired effect.
If you’re using pencils, start by lightly sketching out your design with your lightest color. Then, begin filling in your drawing with progressively darker shades of pencil until you reach your desired effect. Again, use a blending stump or cotton swab to help blend the colors together smoothly.
Once you’re happy with your ombre artwork, allow it to dry completely before framing or displaying it proudly!
