Make a fresh lemon scented, no-cook puffy paint recipe for summer arty fun! It smells wonderful and is so easy to make with these three simple ingredients. It’s a feast for the senses!
We first made this super-quick and easy, puffy paint recipe while we were enjoying some Christmas crafts last year. We made it white and sparkly to represent snow, and then created a peppermint scented puffy paint recipe too!
We thought we would have a go at making the same puffy paint recipe but change it up a little by adding some fresh, summery scents and flavours. So the first one we tried was a zingy and fresh lemon puffy paint recipe; it smelt amazing!
Lemon Puffy Paint Recipe:
2 cups shaving cream
1 cup white glue (PVA/ school glue)
a squirt yellow paint or food colouring
a squeeze of fresh lemon juice
Mix the glue and shaving cream together in a clean bowl, folding the shaving cream into the glue a little like folding egg whites. Too much mixing makes the shaving cream lose air and reduces the overall puffiness of the paint.
The paint is now ready to use!
Once your creations are complete, simply leave them to dry completely for a few hours or, even better, overnight. The paint will dry thick and puffy and looks really effective!
Experiment with different scents and colours of your own to create fabulous, abstract art.
