Death Star Salt Painting

Death Star Salt Painting

There are few things in Star Wars as ominous as the Death Star… But did you know there’s a way to make the┬átechnological terror a bright, fun painting project for young kids? All it takes is glue, salt, and watercolors for the ultimate art project in the universe.

What You Need

  • Black cardstock paper
  • School glue
  • Salt
  • Watercolors
  • Paintbrush
  • Pencil
  • Paper plate (optional)

Get Started!

Begin by tracing a paper plate or cereal bowl to make a large circle on the paper.

Use smaller bowls and a quarter to make the smaller circles for the Death Star’s “dish.”

Draw a line across the middle of the large circle for the trench.

Trace the lines with a thick line of glue. Dot the area around the circle with the school glue to make stars.

You can also draw TIE Fighters or X-wings with the glue to add a space battle to the scene.

Sprinkle the salt over the glue lines and dots.

Shake the salt off into the trash or sink immediately. Set aside the paper and let completely dry for a few hours.

Once dry, grab the watercolors, a cup of water, and a paintbrush. Paint over the salt, letting the colors blend as much as desired.
