How to create snowflake art

These step by step instructions will help you create your pour painted snowflake decorations.  Then you can watch the whole process in the video below.

Start by prepping your paints. Like I said above they make a lot of thickening agents for pour painting, but since our projects are for the kids, and on a smaller scale the “cells” that you see in a lot of YouTube videos aren’t really the goal so our DIY thickening agent works. Just mix 2 parts white glue to 1 part water to create the thickening agent. Then mix 1 part paint with 1 part thickening agent.

Once all of your colors are prepared, start layering the paint in a cup. Pour a small amount of each of your colors into the cup.  Repeat the process as many times as you want until you have a cup full of colorful paint layers.These pour painted snowflake decorations are the perfect winter art project for kids.
