Craft Spotlight: Big Huge Fingerpaint Fish!

2014-10-06-FeatureImageDecorate giant paper fish with fingerpaint, glue and glitter! Our art campers painted and collaged several Big Huge Fingerpaint Fish paper projects. Check out their process below!

_DSC0126The R75402 Fingerpaint Fish is 3 feet long and about 2 feet at its widest point, making it a great canvas for group art projects!

_DSC0127First we painted the Fingerpaint Fish fully on one side as a base for the next layer of art collage material. Use thick tempera paint or fingerpaint to saturate one side of the painting shape.

Next, we provided the campers with a container of glue. Use regular dollar store containers to keep glue intact between groups of students. You can place the lid back onto the container to keep the glue from drying out.

DSCF7037We asked our art campers to imagine they were drawing on fish scales or body patterns with the glue. Why would we paint the fish with glue? Good question!
