Lay a piece of cling film over the top. I wrapped it around the sides too to stop the paint oozing out the sides.

Now the fun part, squish the paint through the cling film.

My son was kept looking at his fingers and was surprised they weren't covered in paint. He dabbed gently with one finger and then really got into it with both hands.

Once finished, peel off the cling film and leave your unique modern art piece to dry.
