Corn Syrup Painting
I learned about corn syrup painting from Heather, a StrongStart
facilitator down island, when I visited during Spring Break.
By mixing clear corn syrup with a bit of paint you can create
wonderful shiny pieces of art.
We used this painting technique for a couple of days. The first day
using large paint brushes and large pieces of paper cut in flower shapes.
The wonderful thing about corn syrup paint is that the colours stay
separate unless you blend them.
The second day we tried the opposite by using small paint
brushes and small papers,
plus I added pictures of wild flowers of British Columbia for
This paint creates a beautiful glossy finish that appears to be still wet.
Different styles by our young artists create wonderfully unique images.
Thank you to Heather for sharing.
