‘Steal’ your painting equipment from the kids – Play around with paint sponge rollers
Dear friends of Your Colourful Mind,
Whenever I walk into a crafts shop I immediately turn to the kids’ department.
And nearly always I find new and exciting craft tools or materials to take home.
Yes, it might be that these products originally were made to support children in their crafting activities. However, that – of course – can’t keep me from using them in one of my next real fun projects.
A fun project – Using paint sponge rollers to create patterns in a very quick and easy way
Painting tools for kids usually are very inexpensive, so there the financial risk involved in buying and trying them is very small.
For this project I used textured paint sponge rollers.
Sponge roller – also called foam paint rollers – allow us to create designs on fabric in a quick and easy way.
I decided to work with just one paint colour but three different sponge rollers.
Sponge rollers are easy to load with paint but the paint should have a thin consistency.
I diluted my paint with some water.
And then I started by ‘rolling’ one of the rollers over the T-shirt’s surface. The plastic handle made this very easy.
Each of the rollers created different patterns
No artistic skills are needed for this project. Painting with these soft rollers definitely is very easy. And it’s a very fast way of patterns-creation.
I had to force myself to stop! 🙂
When was the last time you worked with children’s craft tools? Which tools did you use?
