To mix-up one of Tyler's recent painting sessions, we added a good amount of salt to him tempra paint. This is said to make the art work sparkle when it's dry.
Ty noticed a difference in the texture as soon as he put his hands in it. The rough, grainy feel on his hands was an unexpected sensory experience! I was a bit doubtful that by the time Tyler was done going over and over the paint with brushes and his hands that it would look as it was supposed to, but at least he would get a little sensory experience extra out of it! Ty also discovered that the paint colors he chose (purple, pink, black, gray) made a pretty gray color when mixed together.
In the end, the paint looked a bit sparkly when directly in the sun, but otherwise it was rather dull. Ty wanted it hung right next to his table. He likes to remember what colors he mixed to make gray and really enjoys running his hand over the rough surface!
