Painting Tips

Painting intimidated me... I was unsure how to do the wet-on-wet painting, the set-up and everything!

Someone finally told me to mix the paints up ahead of time and store in fridge! (you don't have to do this but I like it, saves time and my paint dried up before) I just pour into small jars what we need and if I have extra leftover, I pour it back into large jars- no waste!

I have a large tub that I fill with water. The girls dunk their paper into it and let it drip off before placing onto the art board. **Then they sponge off the access water and smooth wrinkles.**

I also have them use the sponge to remove access paint on brushes. Then we relax and have fun mixing colors and creating beautiful paintings.
