Toothpaste Art

This may sound like one of the weirdest hobbies you may ever have come across, but when you think about it realistically, there shouldn't be anything preventing and keeping us from painting with toothpaste.

It may not have crossed your mind, but you can create some wonderful projects with the same brush strokes as when you would be using paint. It is a lot cheaper then oil paint, but it blends and can be mixed equally as well and I suspect it smells a lot fresher too.

I am not so sure how well it would turn out in the long run, after the toothpaste has dried.

I anticipate it would have to dry slowly in order not to crack, but covering your art with a damp cloth could help slowing down the process and prevent the cracks from occurring.

It wouldn't surprise me if you could even make figurines out of toothpaste. You would probably have to do it in stages and let the figurine dry well before adding on to it. You will also have to take in account that your sculpture will shrink during the drying process.

It is worth giving it a try and if it doesn't work out the way you wanted, you can always use it for your pearly whites or other applications!
