Here's an art activity that's inexpensive, loads of fun to make and produces some impressive results. What’s cool is that the colors stay separate rather than mix. You could squeeze out a puddle of yellow salt paint, then add drops of blue on top and those drops of blue would hold their shape and color and separateness until dried.

--WHAT YOU'LL NEED--

Flour
Salt
Water
Food coloring or tempera paint
Squeeze bottles (or piping bags if you don't have squeeze bottles)


--STEP 1--

Whisk together equal parts flour, salt, and water. Then mix in color.

--STEP 2--

For the color, You can either use food coloring, or a tablespoon or two of tempera paint for the color other times. Both work.

--STEP 3--

Squeeze the puffy paint onto card stock or heavy paper in any image, design, or abstract marks desired.

--STEP 4--

Try adding a second color on top of the first. As I said earlier, the colors remain separate and don’t mix, which is an interesting aspect of this art.
