Create and customize paper lanterns to decorate your space using two colourful paint techniques!
To achieve technique #1: Protect your surface and assemble the paper lantern.
Put a few tablespoons of paint in a variety of colours on a paper plate.
Load a generous amount on to each paint brush and flick the paint at the lantern.
Turn and repeat to cover the whole lantern until it looks finished. Allow to dry before hanging and displaying!
For technique #2: Protect your surface and assemble the paper lantern.
Add 2 tablespoons of acrylic paint and 4 tablespoons of water in a spray bottle. Screw the lid on tightly and shake well. Repeat for each colour you want to use. Mix and match for custom colours!
Spray paint on to the lantern. Try spraying the colours on top of each other to see how the colours blend! Continue to spray colour until the project is complete!
Allow your lanterns to dry and hang to display!
