What to Do with Your Splatter Art

Now that you’ve had fun splatter painting, what will you do with your splatter art? Here are some ideas…


  • Display the artwork. Hang the painting on the wall, framed or unframed.
  • Make your own greeting cards (cut out small squares or rectangles from the splatter art and glue to blank card folded over).
  • Make book covers.
  • If you splatter painted on fabric, use it as a fort or teepee cover.
  • Use the splatter art as a backdrop for a photo booth.
