Monoprint mania!

This is a fun and easy project to do to make painting seem new. All ya need is paint, preferably something thick like finger paint, tempera or acrylic, heavy paper to paint on and another piece to lift the image.

scrumdilly-do it!

Set out your supplies andh ave your kidlets paint or finger paint on their paper.
The thicker the better so go ahead and let them paint on top of their paint!Once they are finished painting, have them doodle a few designs with their finger, if the paint is thick enough , sometimes this will cause a negative on their mono print paper.Next, place a blank sheet of paper over the painted piece and rub.Gently pull paper off and you have a print of the artwork!To jazz it up a bit, add a blob of glue to a small amount of water and have your wee one's paint the glue/water mixture over their picture. If the print is thick, you won't need to use glue so skip this part.Add glitter and set aside to dry.Lookie, a sparkling, dazzling mono print!
