Make a wonderfully scented raspberry puffy paint recipe for sensory play fun and creative art projects!
Here is the next recipe in our scented sensory art collection, and this raspberry puffy paint recipe smells just wonderful! Just like with our peppermint, lemon and chocolate puffy paint recipes, this requires only 3 simple ingredients and takes a few moments to make. It dries hard and puffy with a lovely texture and is so much fun to use too. A feast for the senses!
Raspberry Puffy Paint Recipe:
2 cups shaving cream
1 cup white glue (PVA/ runny/ school glue)
3-4 fresh raspberries, crushed to a smooth paste with a fork
Simply mix the shaving cream into the white glue, folding it gently as you would do when mixing egg whites (to help the shaving cream keep the air in and not deflate too much.) Then stir through the raspberries until they are fully incorporated.
As with all puffy paint, it is better to use a spoon to dollop it onto the paper or cardboard first, and then use a paintbrush or fingers after that to spread it out. Otherwise you tend to not get enough onto the paper and it remains a little flat. sing large amounts equals lots of thick and puffy paint once dry.
