Marbled Lids Process Art


Marbled Lids Process Art - Preschool Painting Ideas - Recycling


Did you see the Drip Painting Luminaries we enjoyed recently? It was the first time we had done experimented with this technique. It was really quite satisfying watching thick, glugs of paint falling gracefully down the jars! Its something we plan on doing again soon. We are really enjoying the focus on Process Art right now.

It was during our Drip Painting Luminaries activity that we began this spontaneous art. I have been saving the lids off our baby porridge jars. I really like the vibrancy of red on them - we have already used them to make Heart Suncatchers! I thought they would make a really good base to place the jars on to catch the paint. They did a great job and it wasn't until I transferred the jars over onto some newspaper that my daughter picked up the lids and began her very own experiment.

The paint had collected in the lids. I loved the glittery paint that we used for this activity! I could totally see why my 4 year old was drawn to it! We did add a little more paint too where needed before she started tilting the lids and watching as the paints and patterns began to move around the base of the lids.

The patterns looked so effective! They took around 24 hours to dry... but there was quite a lot of paint sitting on the base.

They really did look lovely when they dried. My daughter has been using them in her small world play activities. Her imagination has seen them be boats, beds, food for her small world figures, galaxies in space....
