I have to admit that, once again, my daughter’s project came out better than mine. So, here is my talented 6-year-old showing you how it is done.

Glossy Sugar Painting Sunflower

We love experimenting with different painting techniques. Recently, we played around with salt painting. The process was so cool and generated a lot of ooohs and ahhhs from my daughter. She loved the way the paint spread out quickly as it touched the salt. Today, we switched the salt for sugar. The technique and results were equally cool.
