Blob Art

These pictures are late in coming, but I still thought it would be nice to put them up. It was Friday, July 31, and I attended a sort of arts-and-crafts meeting at Ramona's house. First I made this cute one of Yakko with watercolor paints, and then we did a bunch of awesome "blob art"! "Blob art", as you may guess from the name, is a technique where
  1. You fold a piece of paper in half.
  2. Then open it and put blobs of paint on it (its good to use tempura paint because it's easy to pour).
  3. Fold the paper in half again and spread the paint with your hands.
  4. Finally you open it, and voila! An abstract masterpiece!
Now here's a game I'd like to try: Leave a comment saying what these two pictures remind you of, and I'll add some outlines to them in Photoshop using your suggestions. Thanks a bunch!


  1. Aww, Yakko's so cute.

    The first one looks like a well-fed gerbil to me, do you see the ears? Hmmm, the second looks like a pitbull, the dog, but looking at it again it sorta looks like a bird or a dragonfly. . .

    I love the colors.

  2. Oh boy! My first commenter on my Art Blog! Thanks a bunch Rainy, you're my most loyal reader.

    I don't quite see a gerbil, but I will try and make it up the best I can. Ditto for the pitbull/bird/dragonfly.
