Spatter Painting; Comets and Stars

In class we made some quick spatter paintings of comets and stars. It’s a pretty simple method. Dip a toothbrush in white paint and spatter the black paper or just sling paint and drag blobs along in order to get a reasonable looking comet and/or stars. It’s a fun and easy way of getting a space look.

Above is a crude video of a student making one of the space paintings. I shot it with my Nikon 110,  so the quality is not all that great, but hopefully you get the idea as to how the comets and stars are made.

Work is in progress.

This one looked nice.

A nice grouping of comets.


This has nothing to do with spatter painted stars and such but it was a turned in lesson plan that had a nice project.  On the whole, all the lesson plans turned in looked good.
