  • Washable Paint


  • Step 2

  • Step 4

  1. Cut some circles out of the paper so that they just fit in the base of the salad spinner basket
  2. Squirt dollups of paint on top of the paper
  3. Put the lid of the salad spinner on and set it spinning as fast as you can.
  4. Remove the lid and carefully remove the art taking care to keep it horizontal until it has dried.


  1. You can pick up salad spinners for a few dollars if you don't want to risk contaminated salad!
  2. We found this worked best if the initial spin was as fast as possible!
  3. If you aren't entirely satisfied with the first spin, you can add more paint and spin again!
