Art: Window Paint Recipes
The house we have just moved into has a large glass sliding door with no stickers or other markings across the middle of it. This was a safety hazard as it would have been easy to walk into the closed door without seeing it.
The solution? Give the boys some paint and set them before the glass door. The end result is a beautiful piece artwork which doubles as a safety feature as there’s no way in the world anyone could miss the colourful display and crash into the door!
Window Paint Recipes
• To paint on the window, we simply used acrylic paint. It will wash off when it’s time to change the painting … or move house (may that not be for a LONG time as I’m not a big fan of shifting!!!)
• Alternately you could add equal parts of dish-washing detergent to washable paint. The detergent will help make cleaning the paint off the window easier.
• Another recipe for window paint is simply mixing equal parts of dish-washing detergent and powdered tempera.
No matter what sort of paint you decide to use, painting on a window is a great art experience. The glass adds light to the end painting so it continually changes as the light moves throughout the day.
The paintings can also be changed so you have different art displays on a regular basis. We hope you will enjoy trying this on one of your windows at home.
