Step 1: Supplies
You will need:
-Empty and Cleaned Out Spray Bottles
Here I used paper towels to cover my work station, because I didn't want to get paint on the counter.
Also, I didn't show water in any of the pictures because I will just use tap water.
Step 2: Adding the Paint
To start, you will need your Acrylic Paint color of choice, here I am using red. Pour a small amount of paint into the bottle.
If the paint won't go down into the bottle you can gently bang it on the counter.
Once you pour the paint into the bottle, grab a paper towel and clean off the rim on the outside.
Step 3: Adding Water and Shaking
After you have added the paint color of choice, pour a small amount of water in the bottle. Here I am using sink water.
Be sure not to fill your water to the top of the spray bottle. If it is too liquidy the spray paint will come out just like colored water.
Only fill the bottle about a fourth of the way up, or a little less.
After the water is in, it's time to put the cap on shake it! Shake it very well until its all mixed up, and you are done, all you have to do is make as many colors as you'd like and test it out.
Step 4: Testing and Finishing
I made seven colors of spray paint. There is Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple and Pink. Now it's time to test them!
This method of DIY Spray Paint is really good because it turns out great. Every color came out great.
I put a few pictures to show you how they came out.
That's it! Your finished!
I hope you enjoy making this DIY Spray Paint, and have fun!
