Painting with Homemade Paint ~ A great practice run!

By Alecia Rolling

IMG_6206We are working on iconography this year, so we also decided to make our own paint! This was quite the learning experience.

After trial and error we successfully mixed spices, oils, vinegar, and flour together to make paint. The most successful colors were brown made from leftover coffee and purple made from red cabbage juice.

The kids enjoyed the project — even the colors that were not successful — and they learned about symbolism in Christian artwork.

What a great practice run!
