Is it getting hot in here or is it just the colors (and flavors) of this DIY artwork? We’ve been having a lot of fun in our Virtual Makeover series challenging the homeowners to make art with unconventional items. A little exercise in Creative Weirdness, if you will.
This time, I thought it would be yummy to switch out traditional paints for highly pigmented spices and ingredients found in most kitchens! Read on for the supplies and steps!
Vibrant spices (turmeric, cayenne, paprika, coriander, cinnamon, dark roast coffee, etc.)
Fair warning, this project can get a little messy! Make sure you put something down to protect your workspace.
- Mix together the hot water and spices in different containers. You will need to stir a bit to make sure it comes together and doesn’t clump or separate.
- When your spicy, colorful mixtures are ready, use them like paint to paint an abstract design onto a piece of watercolor paper.
- Let your painting dry, and gently brush off any powdery residue from the paper before framing and hanging!
