Flower Art ~ Water Color and Black India Ink

Flower Art


I came across this art project idea over at bloesm kids. The directions are very easy to follow. The one thing I would add is to make sure your paper is wet enough so the color will “spread”.

Best of all, it’s a very kid friendly project. They especially like working with the India ink.


Here’s a list of supplies you’ll need:

  • watercolor paper
  • watercolor paint
  • sponge brush
  • paintbrush
  • black India ink
  • bamboo skewer

A finished piece of art. Very *springy*.

I think this method would work well for painting fish in a pond …hmmm… maybe I’ll have to try that next. :)


I’d love to stay connected.
