Introduction: Paint Blowing!

I came up with this when I was playing with paints. I wanted one of my paintings to dry, so I blew directly on one of the drops of paint. It spread everywhere and my painting was ruined! But then I came up with this idea! Blow the paint as an art!

Step 1: The Supplies

For this project you will need:

A few pieces of paper
1+ Dixie cups
a disposable stirring utensil
Straw
tempera paint 
Water

Step 2: The Paint

For this project regular watercolors from a tin will not work, so instead we will be mixing tempera and water to make a thin, vibrant colored watercolor. First, choose the colors of paint you would like, and mix them in the Dixie Cups. I used blue and yellow to make a lime green color. Stir well. Next add water until thin. I mixed 5 colors, but you can do as many as you want.

Step 3: Blowing

Now that you have your paint, you can begin blowing. Dip the tip of your straw in the paint. Let the drops fall on to the paper. Choose a drop and blow directly on top. Paint should go in all directions.

Step 4: Done!

When your finished, let it dry and hang it up!

You can also use watercolors, but you have to use watercolor paper so its not all wrinkly and the colors are not as vibrant.
