Ever Paint with a Q-tip?

What Tools Do You Paint With?

Today in the Blue Iris Studio
my little 4-year old student
painted with several tools besides brushes.

She did paint with brushes,

But I totally screwed up that video.

And after she got the background on,
then she painted some stems for her flowers.
But she also painted with 

Blaire used a bottle cap from her water bottle
to make circles on her painting. 

Then she used her q-tips  to add centers to the circles.

She also painted with a fork.

 After we got lots of flowers on,
she added some fluffy stuff on her stems
with a fork.

This is Blaire and her finished painting.

 We got lots of paint on our hands.
I had already washed Blaire's hands once
but you know how it is,
we get a lot of paint on our hands in a short amount of time.

If you would like to take art classes with me,
whether individually or as a group,
you should know I take new students of all ages
and abilities who want to learn using acrylic paint.
You can email me at 
and put "Art student questions" in the subject line.

There's lots of my original paintings there,
and there are vintage linens,
and some pretty interesting glassware.
Sometimes I have some interesting jewelry making supplies.

Thanks for stopping by today.
How about leaving a comment
 so Blaire and her mom can see.



  1. Tell Blair I am very impressed. I have used the Q-tip myself and didn't do as well as she did. I have never tried a fork and it looked fun. Well, I mean Blair made it look fun!

  2. Thanks Julie. I'll let her know. She is a great little girl and artist. The fork was pretty interesting.
