Update: Shaving Cream & Glue Paint


dscf5583.jpgdscf5582.jpgI never put up any pictures with my first post about this cool puffy paint so here are some pictures of our second time using it. All you do is mix roughly 1/2 glue & 1/2 shaving cream to make a thick puffy paint that dries great. This time we made 2 colors by adding in a little liquid temper paint (didn’t change the thick consistency much) and I gave the boys bits of ribbons and glitter to add to it. It was very messy but I used washable paint so it wasn’t a big deal. dscf5578.jpg

    I used plain mens white shaving cream (I think colgate brand?). First I add some glue to a cup and then the shaving cream and then a little more glue on top. Then I squirt in the paint and mix well with a knife. It worked perfectly for us both times, dried nice and puffy and stayed that way weeks after still.

    We tried this project – and it worked so great! I am excited to try it again and add color this time! Heather – I love your art project ideas – especially with a child like Brooke!!

    Try painting with colored paint, but spread it out more thinly. Spread on index card, this dries to a flexible leather-like substance that can be cut and shaped. It keeps whatever shape you make. Really cool!!!

    I have a son with sensory problems and we use this activity to make him work. He totally hates it but we need to get him used to touching things.
