Crayola sent us a free review unit of the Paint and Pour Washable Art Set for us to review. Opinions are our own.

The Paint and Pour Washable Art Set is a great way for kids to enjoy the art of pouring paint and not make a giant mess. The kit gives you everything you need to get started. The set includes (10) 2 Oz Paints (5 Colors), (3) 6 x 6 Canvases, Paint Tray, Beaker, Pouring Base, Strainer, and 3 Stir Sticks.

Working on Pouring

To start off you have to mix the paints with a little water to make them flow smoothly. The instructions give you the details on how to do this. I had Andy mix up each of the five colors (red, yellow, blue, purple and white) in the beaker. I cleaned it between each color mixing. Once he was done he put the colors into the beaker to get it ready for pouring.

Andy then poured the mixture through the strainer onto the canvas and tilted it this way and that to cover the whole canvas. We did cover the table but the paint was mostly contained by the paint tray. I say mostly because Andy did tend to forget and put the stirring sticks on the table cover. It is a good thing to cover your work area so that you keep everything nice and clean.

Adding Drops

Once the canvas was covered we added more to it using the pipette. With that we were able to make some bubbles and I showed Andy how to make the bubbles bigger by puffing a little air at a time in the bubble. When the bubble popped, paint would splatter around a bit more. This made for a cool design.

Poured Painting

Once Andy was finished I tried making my own art piece. I think ti came out pretty good.

You can pick this up on amazon.com and I’ve included my affiliate link if you wanted to purchase and help us out. I also included a link to the Crayola Signature Paint-Pour Canvas Art Painting Kit which is a more advanced kit for older kids.

Today I helped my Dad and sisters do some more cleaning out of our old house. I thought that I had everything of my own out of the house but I decided that there was one thing more that I would like. My mother calls it a “Hall Tree” and it has stood in our hall all my life. My dad explained to me that it was something that he wanted from his grandfather. He ended up having to buy it through an auction but it stayed in the family. Now it will stand in our hallway. It is almost a perfect fit.
