RAINBOW BRUSH PAINTING

Rainbow Brush Painting

Lately I’ve been inspired by all the cool rainbow brush art I’ve seen on Instagram (P.S. are you following us?) using light tables and ones with alcohol from @janelovesdesign.

So here’s my take on a super easy rainbow art project that kids can easily set up on their own.

Watch the video down below to see how. Nothing super fancy or materials needed here. What’s cool is that you can add more lines of paint and make more rainbows! 

I’m definitely not trying to be this great artist here 🙂 unlike many fluid artists who are pretty amazing.

We just don’t often have the right tools or materials so this is just a little rainbow paint hack anyone at home can do. 

My daughter who loves painting rainbows on rocks, had fun with it and made several painted rainbows!

This is a great painting art project to talk to kids about colors and lines. 

You can expand further by creating palettes of colors not just rainbow patterns. Would it make a great handmade gift wrap from kids? 

RAINBOW BRUSH PAINTING – MATERIALS: 

  • Paintbrush
  • Paper (we love watercolor papers)
  • Paint in rainbow colors (we used acrylic paints)

INSTRUCTIONS:

Step 1. Add a line of each color down your paintbrush. It doesn’t have to be exact or super neat! The colors do a good job of melding together 

Step 2. Slowly drag your paintrush down on your paper to paint a rainbow line!

Step 3. Make more rainbow lines by adding ore paint down your brush, no need to rinse it out! 

See it in action in the video below.
