Finger Painting for Everybody: Easy, Fun and Mood Lifting
Storm in the Fields
Have fun, fast!
Finger painting is not only for children, it's for all!
Take some paint, splosh it out on paper, add water, and rub it all around. Choose colours according to your current mood. Let your emotions leave through your fingertips. This is immediate art, and a plastic record. Paint whatever you like; let your hands move freely, driven by your feelings, and preserve the results. Your paintings are artistic journals of your mood. So sign them, date them, and keep them in your scrapbook. If you are not too modest, hang them on your walls.
I did some, and I feel like a Van Gogh!
- Use glossy art paper for results like mine. The paint is not absorbed by the paper immediately, allowing you more playtime.
- Use your fingernails to create swirls and streaks. These come out white when your nails dig into the paint to reveal the paper behind.
- Use a big sheet of paper and use your elbow as the axis for long curves. Feels good, gives great results.
- Keep a mug of water next to you, and remove paint frequently.
Have fun, and put the results up as a hub!
