Make some glorious Winter art with this sparkly, snow puffy paint recipe! Using shaving cream and white glue, this paint dries thick and puffy without needing to be heated in a microwave, and looks really effective in art projects! Add in some vanilla essence for a beautiful scent too!
Snow Puffy Paint Recipe: (air dries)
Combine 1/2 cup white glue (PVA/ runny school glue) with 1/2 cup of shaving cream in a bowl and mix together until it looks like thick, whipping cream.
Sprinkle over lots of silver glitter and stir through. Done!
We experimented with this snow puffy paint alongside white chalk and oil pastels on chalk paper, and Miss 2 loved this part of the art experience.
We found that if you dollop the paint onto the card in large scoops, it looks even more effective as it can be piled up to increase volume and thickness. It doesn’t run or lose its shape, and when left to dry flat without being touched overnight, it keeps its puffiness and feels (and looks) wonderfully tactile.
They added cut card shapes for the details on top of the paint while it was still wet and these dried on and stuck firmly in place. They also sprinkled more glitter over the top which made it super sparkly and wondrous!
You can dye this in the mixing stage using gel food colours, to change the theme or explore a range of colourful options!
