What do you get when you combine an ordinary sink strainer with Crayola Washable Kids’ Paint? A beautiful work of art you’ll be proud to hang on your wall. Bonus: Makes a great gift, too!
Combine 1 Tbsp water and one colour of Crayola Washable Kids’ Paint in a plastic cup. Stir with a craft stick until fully mixed, adding more water if necessary. Mixtures should be smooth, but not too watery. Repeat these steps for 4-5 total paint colours.
Use a separate cup to pour layers of paint on top of one another. Alternate colours until you have used all of the paint.
Place a sink strainer in the center of a canvas. Slowly pour the paint mixture into the sink strainer in circular motions, allowing the paint to slowly leak through the holes in the strainer.
Once all of the paint has passed through the strainer, remove the strainer from the canvas and set aside to clean. Pick up the canvas and tilt slightly back and forth so that the paint spread over the entire canvas. Let dry overnight.
