Spin Art

I think I saw this the other day on the Craftzine blog and it looked so much fun!

Take one salad spinner - i didn't have one but you can get them at Briscoes, Payless Plastics etc.

Cut circles of paper that fit inside the basket. I used my Fiskars large circle template which fits perfectly!

Blob paint onto the paper. We just used tempera acrylic paint straight out of the bottle.

Put the lid on and start to spin! Isla loved doing the spinning.

And voila! A cool piece of art.


Next time I think I might water the paint down a little to see if works differently - i think the acrylic paint straight out of the bottle might be a bit heavy for the paper we are using.
