Stamping with Paper Towel Rolls

Pretty simple concept we tested out today. I cut an empty paper towel roll down into smaller segments, provided a tray of tempera paint, and let my artist go to town with it.

The width of the rolls was the perfect size to fit comfortably into Margaret's hands.

She decided she wanted to use a brush, too.

She even managed two-toned stamps.

James thought the whole experience was rocking.

Margaret figured out that the upturned roll segments made for nice brush stands. Pretty ingenious, yeah?

Partway through, she asked for more colors, so we had a chance to do some color mixing.

I love the texture many layers of stamping made on the paper.

And, of course, before we were done, the fingers had to have a dip.
