OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI recommend using card paper for the backing underneath the Lace Circle. Depending on what kind of paint you use, the splatter paint may seep through any weaker or thinner paper. You want to make sure that the art paper is strong enough to withstand the paint splatters.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFill the paint containers with a bit of water to make the paint easier to pick up in the Paint Bellows. Place the template or Lace Circle onto the card paper.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPress all the air out of the Paint Bellow before inserting the spout into the paint. Release the hold on the Paint Bellow to allow it to draw in the paint. Next, aim the Paint Bellow slightly above the art paper and quickly press the back of the Paint Bellows chamber towards the spout and release. Redo this action several times to get a great stippled effect on the paper!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI wanted to use two different colors to make the artwork more interesting, so I used red. Spritz the red paint over the template. Tip: You can also remove your template and place it in another position over the stippled blue paint, then spritz with red to give your artwork a bit of dimension.

    No matter how young or old my students, they never tire of splattering paint! This is a great alternative to paint brushes for little hands, and the doily a great new alternate way to create an art snowflake! Just have the students repeat the curves on the outer edge by cutting around the shape.
