I’ve seen this idea in a few different places, so I’m not exactly sure where I exactly got the idea. The basic idea was that you load up a spray bottle (or water gun in some cases) with watered down paint, hang up a sheet in your backyard and let your kids go crazy.
I wanted to try the same idea with watercolors. I’m working on something that I want to have the feeling of a waterfall and I thought it would be the perfect time to give it a try.
- Spray bottle
- Water color paint
- Also, optional – paintbrush, paper towels, newspapers
It worked out okay, though, because I was trying to get the look of a waterfall.
I used a paper towel to block off areas I didn’t want to spray with paint. It’s good to put down newspaper to catch the stray sprays.
The project is still a work in progress.
