Craft Project - 3d ART

These works of art are also a 3D sensory treat! Let your children paint and create, then microwave their pictures and hang them up!




  • a few drops of food coloring or liquid watercolors
  • 4 Tbsp self-rising flour
  • 4 Tbsp salt
  • water
  • a paintbrush (or clear condiment bottles for squeezing paint)
  • glass or cardboard


  1. Make the microwavable puffy paint by mixing the flour, food coloring and salt. Add water to make a smooth paste.
  2. Pour the paint into the clear bottles and squeeze it onto the glass or cardboard in whatever design you wish. You can also use a paintbrush, but the more paint, the better.
  3. Microwave the painting. If you painted on cardboard, only microwave for 20-30 seconds. If you used glass, microwave for 1:30-2:00 minutes.
