Foil Paint Art

Foiling Art Painting @ Crayon Box Chronicles

Calling all artists! Pack up the paper and pull out the foil and dish soap and let’s paint! Utilizing household materials is such a fun way to create something beautiful! Plus, it teaches the kiddos to conserve, reuse, and to look at things in a different way.  This is another addition to our homemade fun series!

Materials Needed:

What’s Next:
  1. Cover your work surface and your child, lol!
  2. Cover a piece of cardboard with aluminum foil, making sure to fold the foil around the back of the board. {Tip: You can use a bottle or shoe box too.}
  3. Tape the foil down.
  4. Next, for each color, pour 1/2 a cup of tempera paint into a paper cup or plastic bowl.
  5. Add 1 teaspoon of dishwashing liquid to the thick tempera paint and mix well {this is what makes it stick}.  If it still won’t stick, add 1/2 teaspoon of dishwashing liquid to the mixture.
  6. Finally, have your child explore their inner artist, painting pictures on the foil. Set aside to dry.

Foil art with basic household materials is simple, budget-friendly, and makes a beautiful addition to your child’s art wall.  We had leftover paint, so we did a splatter painting too!
