Instructions:1. Sponge Stamp:
- Soft sponge
- Scrubby sponge
- Masking tape
- Paint tray
Cut various shapes out of soft sponges. Dip these into paint that has been poured into a tray, and use as a stamp. A square or rectangular stamp is good for drawing walls or buildings made of blocks.2. Scrubby Paintbrush:
Cut a small piece of scrubby sponge. Wrap it around the tip of a pencil, and secure tightly with masking tape. When you paint a smooth area of color with a regular paintbrush, use the scrubby paintbrush to scratch away the paint and make an interesting texture. The scrubby paintbrush is an excellent tool for drawing trees and bushes.3. Cardboard Combs:
Make "teeth" by cutting notched edges in little squares of cardboard. Cut a few different ones, with "teeth," in different widths and spaces. Cardboard combs are great for drawing raindrops and anything with stripes.
