Painting in the
style of Van Gogh!

IMPASTO recipe: 1/2 C. medium thick tempera paint + 1 Tbsp. white detergent powder (or cornstarch, white flour, etc.). Thin with water or add more powder to thicken. Scoop dollops of paint onto sytrofoam grocery trays, keeping colors apart. Apply paint to heavy paper or posterboard using a popscicle stick to texturize the paint– make lines, squiggles, shapes, etc.
