Try this fun painting technique using string soaked in paint and pulling it across the paper to create amazing colourful effects.  Simple, colourful fun that is ideal for kids of all ages. This is a very effective and easy activity. 


Step 1:

Lay out a piece of paper and fold it in half, then open it back up so it is left open.


Step 2. 

Arrange the string on one side of the paper.  Then, immerse the string in one of the paint colours.


Step 3. 

Close the paper by folding it in half.  With one hand on top of the paper, pressing the paper together, pull the string out with the other hand. 


Step 4.

Repeat with another colour and a clean piece of string.  When you have completed a range of colours, leave them to dry.


Tips:

> Too many colours of paint seem to look messy. Try two or three bright colours.

> Cotton string works really well.

> Even an acrylic paints work well
