Puffy Paint Art Project

June 1st, 2012 in Crafts

Now this project has even cooler results if you buy little craft squeeze bottles or even empty ketchup/mustard type bottles so you can squeeze the puffy paint out of them. I am just trying to use up everything in my house and not buy anything new–so we did it with different types of paintbrushes. Still fun!

Puffy Paint Art Project


  • Equals parts (it just depends on how much you want to make, if you are making more than one type of paint, just do 1/3 cup measurements) of flour, salt, and water
  • Powdered Tempura Paint
  • Either those paint bottles or just different types of paintbrushes
  • Paper to paint on (I label the papers with the kids names before we begin, it helps tons)


1. Mix equal parts of the flour, salt, and water. Then add in a bit of powdered tempura paint and mix away.

2. When the paint dried it is of course—puffy!
