tidal wave plastic container paint pour

Paint Pour is not limited to a canvas! Pour highly-pigmented paints over the lid of a plastic box for a unique decorative art piece. Fill the box with wrapped candies and give as a gift or add to your desk!
Step 1

Place a piece of palette paper on your working surface and add two disposable cups, turned upside-down, to the middle.

Step 2

Balance the lid over the two cups.

Step 3

In a separate disposable cup, add layers of your paints. Be careful not to mix the paints, they should remain layered in your cup.

Step 4

Put on a pair of disposable gloves and pour the layered paint over the top of your lid.

Step 5

Pick up the lid (with your gloved hand) and tilt it side to side to move the paint as desired. You want to make sure the surface is covered.

Step 6

Place the lid back on the over-turned cups and let completely dry.
TIP: The paint will continued to level out and any excess will drip over the side. Having it on the cups elevates it and prevents sticking to your working surface. Although the palette paper is non-stick, the paint can dry in puddles around the lid so elevating it also prevents having to cut and smooth out the edges.

Step 7

Fill the food-safe container with goodies and place the lid on top.
