Textured painting

Textured painting

Keep the kids entertained with this brilliant piece art work. Mixing textures in with your paints will create a 3D look of textured paint worthy of fridge display or even a frame.

What you need:

  • many coloured paints
  • salt or sand
  • paintbrush
  • paint dishes
  • paper

Number of players:


Decide a theme for your picture, for example a beach scene or a camping theme.

Mix salt or sand with paint in various paint dishes.

With a paintbrush paint a textured image.

Set aside to dry.


  • Use a textured background for an collage image. Try making a tent collage and use the sand as the ground and paint some textured stars in the sky.
