Snow Spray Art
We’re making the best of what we have. What we have is SNOW… lots and lots of snow. We’ve been sledding, building snowmen and shoveling sidewalks but one our favorite winter activities so far has been… SNOW SPRAY ART! I don’t know how the snow art craze got started, but it looks like everyone is doing it. Probably because it’s a blast!
When I first saw people using snow paint on Pinterest I knew we had to try it. It seems people are using a variety of ingredients from tempra paint to liquid watercolors and tools such as paint brushes and spray bottles.
For our first try we decided to use simple clear spray bottles, four total. Originally, I wanted to use all different colors of flavored Kool-Aid but we only had red. For the additional colors (green, orange and blue) we used food coloring. The bottles that we used food coloring in actually ended up freezing rather quickly but all the colors turned out great!
First, we tried using poster board first but it was blowing away and the water was warping the shape. Next we moved onto foam board. I cut our large stencils out of foam board with an Exact-O knife. We used a star and heart – both the positive and negative versions for different effects.
Special thanks to my amazing husband-to-be for helping with pictures. He’s an amazing photographer and I appreciate his patience as I’m slowly learning.
Enough talking! Check out our pictures…
