  • Painting with Drips and Sprays | Carle Museum
    your paper we positioned our teardrops on a large piece of watercolor paper This project is more fun to work large Thicker paper like watercolor paper will absorb more water than thin paper like printer paper and is less likely to tear when wet If you only have thin paper put some layers of newspaper underneath to help absorb the extra water It will still be very wet but this will help a little Begin experimenting with your different bottles and droppers Here we used a spray bottle filled with yellow Kool Aid This pipette is filled with blue food coloring search transfer pipette on Amazon for the kind we used here Experiment with the height and angle you spray or drip the paint What happens when you spray from high above the paper Or squeeze the pipette right against the paper What marks can you make when you wave the pipette as you drip the paint What happens when you use gravity to move your drips You can see the paint starts to gather and bead around the plastic stencil shapes The small travel sized spray bottle pictured below makes a fine mist while our larger sprayers made bigger droplets Consider leaving your work to dry before adding more layers You could speed up this process by anchoring them with rocks and leaving them to dry in the sun Working in the grass is also fun Move your stencils around before you work on your next layers to get interesting layers and overlapping marks We squeezed air in and out of an empty catsup bottle to push the puddles of water around the paper Or try blotting off excess water with a paper towel in certain areas Don t blot everywhere or your detailed sprays and drips will disappear We recommend starting with more muted colors and building up the intensity of the colors as you add more layers When the Kool Aid and food coloring water mix dries it loses some of its color intensity so for a vibrant painting increase how much color you add to the water and to make your colors soft and muted dilute them in more water For the final layers of our painting we used very intense colors to drip across the paper Test out mixing your colors and see what you prefer A big thank you to The Studio s Summer Intern Caryn Moon for helping me document this post Our interns play an important role in sharing what happens in the Studio here on our blog and our summer months are always the busiest We will miss Mitchell and Caryn when they leave later this month and go back to college For more information about internship opportunities at The Carle visit our web page Making Art with Children is generously sponsored by the Massachusetts Educational Financing Authority by Diana MacKenzie Tags Drip painting spray painting Caryn Moon Mitchell Benedetti Art Studio Internship Program outdoor art Summer Art Water art Kool
