I thought this was a fabulous idea when I saw it; making two kinds of simple textured paint to create a unique polar bear craft. Pure genius!
puffy paint and sandy paint(see directions below)
sheet of light blue construction paper
polar bear template to trace
Find a simple polar bear template and trace it onto the blue paper.
Carefully spread puffy paint on the inside of the polar bear.
Paint the bottom with sandy paint for the ground. Allow to dry.
The paints will retain a unique texture when dry.
Puffy Paint recipe
Combine equal parts white glue and shaving cream in a cup and mix well
Sandy Paint recipe
Combine equal parts craft sand and paint in a cup and mix well.
Make these special paints right before you use them. Afterward, they will take longer to dry than average paint. You can add a little colored paint to change the color. These textured paints are great for a great many crafts. Try them out soon. Read all about it at the original website, The Crafty Classroom
