My boys are 11 and nearly 10 and at the moment, they are loving anything to do with paint and this process art was no exception.   I can see this being a great activity to do with a group of kids on a larger scale using a huge piece of cardboard and black electricians tape.

Using tape mark out a pattern on the foil.  we used 3mm gridding tape (for whiteboards) If you have younger children then you can do this for them or cut the tape for them and get them to stick it on.  Ideally, you want your tape to touch each other so it looks like lead on a stained glass window.

I loved the different geometric shapes that we all created.  Then you need to prepare your paint.  In order to get the paint to stick to the foil you need to mix it with some washing up liquid (dish soap).  About 1 part soap to 3 parts acyclic paint, not only does this make for an easy brush clean up, but also stops the paint flaking when dry.
