Spin Art Tips and tricks for kids crafts

Here are a couple Spin Art Tips:

  • Lots of small blobs in the middle or drizzling it across the paper works best.
  • Don’t put too much paint or you’ll just end up with a big ball of paper and lots of wasted paint at the bottom.
  • You don’t want to spin too long or too fast or the colors completely blend. You want to do it 5-9 times slowly to create a beautiful mix of colors.
  • Don’t use your good salad spinner! Use one you find at a garage sale, your pitching, or you find at a dollar store.
