My friend over at pepper paints had a cool looking art project. Thomas and I don’t do many art projects now that Beth and Daniel are in school. So after he finished his 20 minutes of school work this morning I suggested we do a painting and surprisingly he was game.
The first step is to use crayons to color a picture. Thomas has been really into pirate ships lately, since he’s been battling Lego irate ships with some friends. So he got a picture for inspiration and colored a great pirate ship.
Next we crumpled up our pictures.
Then we flattened them out and covered them with black Tempera paint. What Pepper Paint failed to mention and I wasn’t smart enough to figure out was that this was going to be MESSY. So I quickly ran downstairs to get us some newsprint so we could paint to the edges without completely covering the table in black paint.
