All you need is a muffin tin or two ( I have special ones just for arts & crafts… not used for cooking)

Your favorite paint colors (Acrylics work well)

Paper (size doesn’t matter, lol)

And your favorite little artist!

I found this fun project on paint cut paste. She also does more printmaking with other things you can find in your kitchen like pie pans and plates. Check it out!

To begin you may want to paint proof your area and smock the artists ;) Throw down a paint cloth or some news papers or just take it outside!

After that, grab your muffin tin and paints. Put a dollop of paint on the back side of each cup. You can arrange the colors to make a pattern or just add random colors, it’s art so get creative!

 

Next just use your fingers (or Q-tips) to draw designs in the paint. It can be simple things like hearts, suns, moons, flowers, leaves, waves, spirals, etc. let your artist decide :)

 

And finally press onto a sheet of paper.

 

And that is all there is to it! Let them dry and display them for your company :) They are quite charming and your little artist will be so proud!!

Just another way to enjoy those muffin tins in a cool and unusual way ;) Have fun!!
