Have you ever tried painting without a brush? That might sound crazy, but there are plenty of ways to paint without a brush such as kids painting with rolling pins and using q-tips to make q-tip star art. I have always wanted to try painting with feathers since we always have a stash of them in our craft closet. I wasn’t sure how the feathers would work with paint or what my kids would think of the idea. Read on to see what happened.
Supplies you will need:
My daughter liked the textured paint effect that the feather provided.
The kids experimented with using the feathers to swirl and mix colors.
They also experimented with using the tip of the feather versus the entire flat side of the feather. Each produced a different effect.
We noticed that we could paint with the pointy side of the feather and it would work like a quill.
