Textured Paint Collage
Activity DesignerStephanie Sims
Under the sea? Springtime flowers? Outer space? A day at the beach? This painting technique can be used for anything you can imagine!
What You'll Need
How We Did It
When that was done, we set the painting aside to dry. Now for the combs! Since this was Maddie's first time doing this, to help her to understand the concept, I drew lines on the cardboard for her to cut out "teeth" for the combs. Some were wide teeth, some were small and pointy.
Next came making the textures! Maddie just dragged the comb through the sea, and then the sand. Crossing lines (horizontal and vertical) makes interesting patterns, too!
She created more textures (the spiral pattern was made with the end of the paintbrush).... and then left the painting to dry.
