Halloween Toothbrush Spray Painting - finished artworkSpray paint can be expensive. When you have something simple to do with your kid and you need spray paint but you can't afford one, use a clean old toothbrush. Today, I'm teaching Halloween arts using the effect of stencils and a toothbrush.



Halloween Toothbrush Spray Painting - supplies


  1. Lay your stencil or cutouts over the black paper. I started with the moon and the witch. Use the open part where you cut the moon. Place the witch in the center.
  2. Halloween Toothbrush Spray Painting - hand sketched witch on a broomstick and a circle cut in white paper for the moon
  3. Dip the brush into the water, remove excess liquid, then into the white water color.
  4. Halloween Toothbrush Spray Painting - dipping toothbrush in watercolor paint
  5. Rub your thumb against the brush to spread/sprinkle paint over the stencil. Don't forget to cover the other parts of the paper.
  6. Halloween Toothbrush Spray Painting - spattering paint using toothbrush

  7. Carefully remove the stencil and it should look like this.
  8. Halloween Toothbrush Spray Painting - witch flying across the moon
  9. Cover your first work (the moon). Add all the other figures, trees, bats, etc. Then sprinkle a combination and/or layers of color. I used white, blue, violet, and yellow (as the final layer). Color combinations add effect so it is important to think which ones go well together.
  10. Halloween Toothbrush Spray Painting - moon covered with a circle of paper and other element cutouts arranged on black paper
  11. Remove the figures and let dry for a short while.
