A Simple Guide to Using Glitter Paint
Using Glitter in the classroom is Messy:
Glitter is messy it gets everywhere!
Once it is on your hands, it’s on your face, it’s in your hair, then door handles, benchtops, chairs and floors. And don’t get me started on clothing. So why do we put up with all this mess? It’s all about the bling, the sparkle.
Art Teachers don't like glitter. There is even a blog full of help called "Art Teachers Hate Glitter"
Is there a way to use glitter without so much mess?
The simple answer is yes. It has been around for a long time too.
The glitter particles are held together within a paint and this stops the messy transfer of glitter that is normally left loose to fly around the room.
Is Glitter sprinkled over glue or paste less messy?
This doesn’t work either as glitter still gets everywhere because the glitter is loose and still gets airborne.
A fun engaging colourful project that you can spread over 4 different school painting lessons. A great way to get children thinking about the colour of the four seasons. It is always a lot of fun getting your hands covered in paint.
