Make vibrant, 3 ingredient puffy paint art in your microwave!
We made 3 ingredient puffy paint yesterday. I’ve written about puffy paint before, but I wanted to share yesterday’s results with you because they’re so awesome! I also figured there were probably a few of you who haven’t seen this stuff before, and you totally need to know how cool this process is, and how EASY it is to do.
Puffy paint is really easy to make (I’m including the link to the recipe at the bottom of this post), and the transformation that takes place when you microwave it is sure to impress kids and adults alike.
The paint is the consistency of stirred yogurt, and we use Q-tips to blob it onto a piece of white cardboard or sturdy cardstock. I say “blob”, because you want to apply a thick, layer to your paper to get the best results.
It looks something like this when it’s wet.
After 30 seconds in the microwave, thanks to the self-rising flour, you get this beautiful, puffed up art!
Art and Science all rolled into one activity! Gotta love it!
