Fork Paint Puffer Fish Art Project

As a native Floridian, I have spent a lot of time at the beach. I love breathing in the salt air, especially along the Atlantic coast. It can instantly relieve my stress and bring me back to my childhood. Summers on the coast were some of the best times of my life. One summer I remember finding a puffer fish that washed ashore, it was so fascinating to me! I have always loved sea life and I long for summer days on the coast as soon as the weather warms up. And, my teacher friends are working on summer projects for their classrooms. So, I thought it would be the perfect time to share a fork paint puffer fish art project!

Begin this project by squirting a small amount of paint onto a palette or paper plate. Since puffer fish are generally yellow in color, I added more yellow to my plate, and just a little bit of red and white to embellish the fish a little bit.

Dip the fork tines into the yellow paint and create a circle of painted quills on the paper. Repeat this step until you have a full circle. I think I did about four or five rounds of circles to make a full puffer fish. I also added a quarter circle at the top of the paper too. But that is totally optional.

Dip the tips of the fork into the red and white paint and add it to the puffer fish to add a little dimension and interest.

Once the paint has fully dried, add a dot of glue to the backs of two googly eyes and place them in the middle of the puffer fish. If you don’t have googly eyes, you could use a marker to draw eyes onto the fish too.
