DIY Corn Syrup Glitter Splatter Paint Art
Looking for a fun creative art project to do outside this summer?
This activity is safe and fun for any age. You can leave the glitter out for smaller children.
Mess Warning: This project is VERY messy and sticky. I would suggest doing this outside.
Sometimes the mess is worth the outcome and this is one of those times.
The good part is that even though it’s messy, the mess is really easy to clean up with just water.
Clear Corn Syrup
Pour in about a half an inch of corn syrup into the bottom of a small plastic cup. We reused Italian ice cups and they worked out perfectly.
Stirring is part of the fun. The colors look so pretty!
Lay a piece of thick construction paper down. Let child sling the paint onto the paper. This creates an awesome pattern!
The cool thing about this paint is that even when it dries, it still looks wet.
The colors mesh together to form an odd rainbow look. We will surely be doing this activity again. These pictures are beautiful!
It does seem like it takes forever for the paint to dry, I would suggest leaving it laying flat over night.
