Remember that scene in Princess Diaries when Mia and her mom threw darts at paint-filled balloons to make art? Splat Paint House offers customers something relatively similar, with their fun-filled art packages that allow you to go crazy with paint creatively.
The concept hosts “splatter sessions” by splattering paint or even shooting paint-filled water guns to create vibrant, one-of-a-kind art. We had to try it out.
Splat Paint House’s current pop-up studio is located at MOX. Upon entering, you’ll be greeted by the studio’s walls and floors splattered in bright, colourful paint.
We each opted for the starter package (S$39), which consists of a 40x50cm canvas, 400ml paints, 2 syringes, 1 squirt bottle or water gun. Special paints such as glitter or neon paint will be an additional S$3.
We were given gloves, plastic raincoats, shoe covers and slippers to protect our clothes. I also chose to wear a shower cap and safety goggles just in case.
Before the session starts, the staff will show you a short safety video with the house rules. You are then given a basket to hold your containers of paint, as well as tools like a syringe, water gun, and paintbrush.
Additional tools like straws, popsicle sticks and balloons can be found in separate buckets if you oddly need such specific items. After you’ve chosen your desired pots of paints, its time to get messy!
How you want to create your canvas is completely up to you. Aside from throwing paint on the floor and on others, you have total freedom.
I opted for the drip effect. What made the artistic process way more enjoyable was the fact that I could let the paint drip on to the table and not worry about having to keep it clean.
Of course, you could totally do this at home. But would you want to clean up this mess?
If you want to splatter some paint on a elevated canvas, there are hooks on the walls to help hold up your canvas.
My colleague Fie opted for a more toned-down colour scheme consisting of hues of blue.
Meanwhile, my canvas looked oddly psychedelic because I just couldn’t stop adding paint (I was obsessed with the neon colours). She literally had to tell me to stop.
This was definitely a fun experience for both of us and I suggest you try this oddly therapeutic activity one day. Splat Paint House even offers party packages and a date night package! Click here to check out their menu.
Customers can come back to get their artwork once it’s dry. However, if you live far away, you can opt for their delivery services, which cost $25. Splat Paint House is set up as a pop-up studio at MOX until 28 October as they are exploring other permanent locations.
