You may be wondering how the two could remotely even go together. Have you ever tried an art project with a six year old involving paint, while they eat a bowl full of Jello? Let me just warn you now, it is NOT the best idea.
I had a piece of wood lying around and I decided I need more artwork in the house. Well you have to remember I have hallways as long as the Lincoln tunnel. I pulled out an off white paint and coated the wood. Next I dug out some older than dirt brown paint and attempted to paint a tree branch. The third step involved the Jello eating six year old. I gave her a large 2 liter pop bottle and a small 16 ounce one. Removed the top off a paint can filled with pink paint. The object is to dip the bottom of the bottle in the paint and then stamp the board. If done correctly, that means not flinging the paint strings, smearing or sticking the bottom of the bottle to YOUR HEAD, you end up with a flower petal like imprint.
The green Jello six year old fountain( which you can’t find on Ebay since this is a custom made fountain) was a byproduct of the head stamping with the paint. As a result here is what we came up with. You should be warned, not only can I not take a good picture, I don’t have an artistic bone in my body. And…even if I borrowed one from let’s say Da Vinci, it wouldn’t help because my girlie cooties would overtake any talent.
