Just in time for the sunny fun of summer, I am so excited to share with you 12 super fun black glue under the sea crafts! You might be thinking, what are black glue crafts? Well, basically they are my new favorite way to get crafty with my daughter. The gist is that you mix Elmer’s glue and black acrylic paint together until the glue is black. Then you trace a pattern with the black glue and let it dry overnight. Once it is dried, you have the perfect outline for painting. I love to use liquid watercolors to make the design pop, but you can use watercolor pens, regular watercolors, or really any medium you would prefer.
Recently I teamed with 11 other truly amazing craft bloggers to put together a black glue under the sea theme. My post is the first one in the list, but really you should definitely check them all out. I can’t even believe how beautiful these crafts turned out.
