Super Fun messy art - paint ink blot print. Transfer your print & make them again & again.

My daughter & I have been having fun with ink blots since she could speak. It has always been fascinating to hear what she saw in her blots. The other part of forming then are that they are just plain pretty to look at & lots of fun to make.

Squirt drops of paint all around a sheet of watercolor paper. Try spacing your drops around everywhere for a more dramatic effect.

Fold your sheet of paper in half & smooth it out to spread the paint around. You can fold the paper in the other direction or rub the folded paper together to spread the pain out even more.

Open your folded piece back up & place a piece of paper or even a blank canvas over your folded paper. Press down on the paper & spread your hands across to ensure that the paint transfers over. Pull the  paper or canvas off to reveal your print & then set it aside to dry. The watercolor paper is thick, so you should be able to repeat the process many times on the same sheet.

After all of the prints, your initial piece of paper will also make a beautiful & colorful painting of its own.
