Do you remember, in the first Princess Diaries, Mia and her mother painted as a hobby, but with darts? I've always thought that looked like fun, and had bought supplies for it a couple of months ago. We finally got to try it! :)
It also involves pointy objects. There is a risk of hurting yourself.
2) Balloons. We used decorators. Also no reason behind this. They were rather difficult to blow up though.
4) Darts. I had purchased soft tipped and metal tipped. Metal tipped are recommended.
6)Object to paint
We took a balloon, blew it up and then released the air. We then squirted paint into the balloon. This took some time to figure out. We did it two different ways. The first we had one person stretch and hold the balloon open with two or three of their fingers, and another person squirt paint into the balloon. This method got less paint on the neck/rim, thus less paint on our mouth.
Or we just tried to carefully squirt it directly in.
We then blew them up again. Do not inhale air through your mouth while doing this step. Also, during the first few tries we got paint on our mouths.
As you can see from the next picture, we soon realized that we needed something underneath the cork-board to keep the darts from tearing through the cork-board. We placed cardboard under it, which help a great deal.
