I gave Tyler different sized brushes as well as Q-tips to use. He generally uses painting tools for a while, then goes to using his hands.
Hand prints have been a Tyler favorite lately
Big circles have been showing up a lot as well
Easy to "erase" your pictures on foil!
More hand prints, though these were with great force, more like splatter hands
When he was finished, I asked if he wanted to add glitter. Of course he did!
He asked to do more after this so I gave him another piece of foil. He was especially impressed with his curly shape here.
For fun I just had to show you his beautiful bath water from the soak he had after painting!
The finished product would have been more finished if I had backed it with the cardboard before he painted, but I forgot. I also forgot that adding a teaspoon of dish soap to the tempra will help it adhere to the foil better. Oops. It still makes a lovely addition to the art work in our home for now! We'll see how much it peels... I'm sure Ty would love to repeat the activity really soon!
