We recently found this great selection of plastic combs at the £1 shop and stocked up on them ready to do some fun experimenting with what effects we could create when dragging them through paint. Using a baking tray lined with tin foil, we squirted in some bright, ready-mix paints in rainbow colour order and dipped the combs into it to pick up some colour on the tips.
We did the same again using two colours in a swirly heart shape, and they combed in criss-cross patterns to blend and mix them together.

very creative and really great idea! what kind of colours did you actually use for your paintings?
On a different note every time we paint the paper ends up rolling – it never stays flat once dry. Does this happen to you too? How do I keep them flat for hanging?
Once you are done painting tape the paper to flat area until it is dry. It will stay flat.
THIS is great!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this looks like fun, my little one (2.5 yrs) isn’t always so interested in paint in any form but she might get a big kick out of this.
by the way, if you happen to have suggestions for the type of paints you use most often, for this kind of thing or whatever, I would love to hear them. I see “bright, ready-mix paints” described in the post, is that just tempera paints? something else non-toxic? do you ever use powder and mix it yourself? thanks.
A person essentially lend a hand to make drastically articles or blog posts I’d condition. Right here is the brand new I actually visited your online web page and as much as right now? My spouse and i astonished using the analysis you’ve made for making this particular send remarkable. Outstanding procedure!
