So happy how this Father’s Day Gift turned out!
When creating art, both Abby and I love to experiment. Sure it doesn’t always work out, but the fun really is in the process. For this project, the end result was a complete surprise. When the paint was wet, it looked absolutely nothing like this.
When making the Clay Hand, we rolled out a big piece of Clay, traced out Abby’s hand, cut it out, smoothed the edges with water and left it to dry on top of a small upside-down bowl for a few days.
The painting technique used, was adding a layer of Clear Glue, for every layer of Paint into a bottle. Once finished building up layers of Colours, the Mixture was poured onto her Clay Hand Dish. We then added texture and removed excess paint with a sponge. Once dry, she used a gold paint marker to create the heart.
Have I mentioned how much I love all art that involves Abby’s tiny hands! I secretly wish I could keep them small forever…they are just too cute!
For this project we used Self-Drying Clay, Tempera Paint, Clear Glue and Sponges from Scholar’s Choice.
