Squished Paint Artwork
This craft project is suitable even for younger children with supervision. Paint is applied to a piece of glass from a photo frame and then a second piece is placed on top and the paint squished to the edges. This is a page about creating squished paint artwork.

Using acrylic paint and 2 old frames (with glass), you can create 2 fun, unique pieces of wall art. No art skill necessary!
Approximate Time: 1 hour (including dry time)
- squeeze bottle acrylic paint
- 2 frames with glass
- gloves (optional)
- rag or paper towels
- background paper
Take apart frames and remove glass from both. On spread out newspaper, carefully clean both sides of the glass (using gloves, if desired).
*Remember, frame glass is unfinished on the edges, so be really careful!
- Once the glass is dry, randomly squeeze colors of your choice on one piece of glass. (Have fun with this part, but don't overdo how much paint you apply, or you'll have a big mess!)
- Lay your second piece of glass over the paint and begin pressing the paint toward the edges of your glass. Once the paint is covering all four corners of your glass, CAREFULLY separate the glass without sliding the paint.
- Lay glass paint side up to dry. While the paint dries, you may want to spruce up your frame, mine were old wooden ones, so I did a quick coat of black paint.
- Some of my paint was transparent when it dried, so I used a piece of copy paper between the paint and cardboard backing of the frame. Secure the backing, hang and enjoy your 2 new pieces of beautiful wall art!
