Toothbrush: Tongue cleaner side stamping

For the Splatter Painting, we had used Colgate 360 Toothbrush, the one with the tongue cleaner. When I saw the tongue cleaner side, the pattern was looking perfect for stamping.

Using washable paint

First we tried to paint the tongue cleaner with a paint brush and stamp. The prints didn't come out very good. Don't know what went wrong!

Next we gave it a try by applying paint with finger tips. CJ liked the sensory feeling of touching the pattern. She was totally engaged in applying paint to the tongue cleaner side rather then stamping.

What do you think? lovely prints right?

  3. I have just read over all your recent posts using your toothbrush and I am in awe! I love that you continually come up with different techniques for painting! I also love how you do tons of open ended art where there's not an end result expected. You are such a fun Mommy!
