Spray painting

Spray painting can be a fine spray or a thick splatter depending on the nozzle on the bottle and the type of paint you use.

The trigger kind of bottle works best for small hands.

Starting with one colour works best so that children can focus on getting the hand action right

Using water colour paper with texture absorbs the ink and looks great with a fine spray.

Placing the painting on a cardboard mat, or 2, turns it into a great artwork, very suitable for a gift.
