We made "Splatter Monsters" today in the little kids' art class. (known as "Drippy Monsters" at the blog that I got the idea from, "smART Class" ).
This first one is my example I did the previous night so I would have a final product to show the kids.
It's pretty simple...just splash a little puddle of watercolor paint onto the paper, then blow through a straw to make the paint go all splattery! Do this until you get the desired amount of splatter effect. Add eyes and mouth from colored paper/cardstock...and voila!...a Splatter Monster!
I like that the kids used multiple colors for their monsters. The merging paint makes a cool-looking effect.
(the writer of the blog I got the idea from said that she used liquid watercolor paint, which I went out and bought and used as well, but I learned while experimenting that regular watercolor paint works as well.)
This goofy little orange tripod guy was the step-by-step example I did during class.
The kids had a lot of fun with this one! I'm sure their older brothers are chomping at the bit to do their own Splatter Monsters next week!
