Step-by-Step Guide: Creating a 3D Spring Flowers Painting Tutorial for Young Artists using Sponge Painting



​This tutorial will explore an exciting technique to create a vibrant 3D painting of spring flowers. This project is perfect for art teachers who wish to engage children in a fun and interactive painting activity. You can guide your students in producing stunning artwork showcasing nature's beauty using sponges and other materials.

So, let's get started!

​Materials Needed:

Step 1: Background Preparation

​Begin by using the Sponge Roller to create the background for your painting. We recommend using Super Tempera Leaf Green and Blue paints to depict a serene spring atmosphere.

Allow the background to dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Step 2: Painting the Flowers

Pour a small amount of  Super Tempera Yellow and Orange paint on a paper plate. You won't need much paint for this.

Now, take a fresh sheet of paper and choose a leaf-shaped sponge to begin painting.

Press the sponge into the paint, ensuring one half has orange paint and the other half has yellow paint. Before proceeding, test the consistency of the printing. Avoid too much paint on the sponge for a smooth print.

​Work your way around in a circular motion, maintaining the same colour pattern towards the centre of the circle.

You can experiment with different sponge shapes and colour combinations for added creativity. Allow the painted flowers to dry thoroughly.

Step 3: Painting the Stems

​Use a Cotton Bud to paint the green stem for each flower. Allow to dry completely.

​​Step 4: Creating the 3D Effect

​Carefully cut out the painted flowers and their stems. Apply PVA glue to the back of each flower and stem.

Position the flowers and stems onto the background, ensuring that some parts extend beyond the edge of the paper to achieve a stunning 3D effect.

​Press the glued pieces firmly onto the background, making sure they adhere securely.
