Rough-it-Up Painting

This paint dries to a rough texture. It will be a new and interesting experience, using paint that isn't completely smooth. Hopefully it will get you and your child thinking of all different kinds of uses for it. It will, for sure, make some beautiful landscape paintings! And I'm sure you can think of many more artwork and craft opportunities this very different paint will allow you to enjoy!

Rough Paint Ingredients and Accessories

Plastic cups
Poster paints
White glue
Popsicle sticks

Optional: glitter glue

How To Make Your New and Funky Paint

1. Add an equal amount of poster paint and sand into each cup, one color per cup.

2. Place a squirt of white glue in each cup. Mix thoroughly with the Popsicle sticks.

2. Use your new, rough paint to make a painting on a piece of plain paper. Or make a painting on a piece of cardboard, say from a cereal box, as a textured painting would work really well on cardboard. Or use the paint for other crafts, such as rock painting or any other project where a rough texture is suitable.

3. For a sparkling effect, use glitter glue instead of white glue.
