Spin Art with the salad spinner - twisted fun!


Do you want to do something fun with kids, but you don't want to mess around? Then make SPIN ART with the lettuce centrifuge! Did you know that you can create beautiful works of art with it? With a (cheap) lettuce centrifuge (one that you can turn by hand) and paper plates or regular cardboard, you can turn great Modern Artworks that may be seen.

Method:

  1. Buy a lettuce centrifuge at the cycle or cheap department store (eg. Ikea)
  2. Place a cardboard disposable plate in the salad spinner
  3. Drop a few drops of acrylic paint in different colors on the plate
  4. Put the lid on the centrifuge
  5. Warm up the muscles and spin!

Tip: Add some water if the paint is too thick. Or add some hair gel for an extra special effect!

01/06/18: Annemie the craft has sent this (above) 4 photos. She made Spin Art with her grandchildren. It is very nice to do, for big and small! When the plates are dry, you can make a collage of them, or cut out parts of them and frame. Or make nice cards or picture frames out of it.

15/5/18: A nice TIP submitted by Dorie the Koningvanvucht : The IKEA salad spinner (3 euro) has been tested as the best!
