Painting on Foil

 I found this fun idea on Pinterest for a new medium on which to paint. These kids love to paint and always jump at the chance to do so. I love trying to find new ways to make it interesting for them without breaking the bank. Painting on aluminum foil was perfect!
 The feel of the paintbrush sliding along the foil is quite different than painting on paper. 
 It's also fun to have the light reflecting off the surface anywhere where the paint was thin enough. The paint colors really popped and it looked neat.
While this doesn't really make a work of art that you can hang on the wall forever, it is a fun process art project. You can pick up a roll of aluminum foil at the dollar store, so why not give it a try?!
