Press Painting Snowflake Decorations

We have been sharing quite a few different pour painting projects with you. This technique is just so fun for the kids and creates beautiful pieces of artwork. However, sometimes you have some paint that drips below… We don’t like to waste art supplies around here so after we finished up our pour painted snowflakes we tried something out with the drippings. The results were beautiful! So we skipped the pouring altogether and created these snowflake decorations using this fun press painting process that is perfect for kids of all ages!
