Summer Shadow Pictures

Materials Required:

  • Paper
  • Bright coloured poster paint and black paint
  • Print outs of yourself or a person who you want to make into a shadow
  • Glue stick
  • Paint brushes
  • Scissors

As the weather has been so nice over the summer, we took the opportunity to make some splatter-paint shadow pictures. First we printed out three images that we wanted to turn into shadows and then painted over them using black paint. Once dried, we then cut them out so they were ready to go on our finished picture. Secondly, we went outside and got some brightly coloured paint which we then splattered on our paper using a brush, this was messy but great fun!

Once the paint had dried we glued our shadows onto the background.
