If you're like me, you're always finding new cheap ways to have fun. One of my favorite things to do is make paintings with glue and water colors!
You can only successfully do this with a hot glue gun or with a traditional bottle of glue, like an Elmer's glue bottle. The tip of both allow you to "draw", making a tip that can be used to create lines. A glue stick will not work, since the tops are wide and flat. It will not make controlled spaces and you will loose track of the drawing. The watercolors will also refuse to stay in the lines.
By using a hot glue gun and a traditional bottle of glue, the glue lines you use to draw will be raised. This is what makes glue drawings very close to coloring book pages. The artistic part comes from drawing the pictures, waiting for them to dry and then coloring within the lines.
Follow these steps:
1. Get your gun or bottle of glue and dray a simple picture. Draw as if you're trying to leave gaps for paint. Instead of drawing a flower and filling in the petals with glue, leave the petals "open" so they can be filled in.
2. Give it an hour to dry or however long is says on the bottle.
3. Fill in your drawing with watercolor paint.
