Any ideas on how to do the ‘blow’ painting?

Keiron Throssell · Mar 6th, 2019

Hi Keiron, thank you for contacting us. Blow painting is commonly done using straws with the end dunked into paint, then keeping the paint inside by closing the top end with your finger. Once in position, you blow through it onto the paper.

dip a toothbrush in paint and flick it with your thumb works well or paint and a little water in a spray bottle?
