Painting your own fireworks in a fuss-free manner

Singapore’s 49th National Day is around the corner. For many of us, one of the best parts of the celebrations is the grand fireworks. With this year’s fireworks looking to be even more spectacular, how about painting your own fireworks right at home? Recreate your favourite fireworks memories, or let your creativity run wild and create a one-of-a-kind firework masterpiece.

Tip: Before you start creating your masterpiece, draw inspiration by talking to your friends and family. Ask them to share about their fireworks memories, or where they saw it.

Here are some fuss-free DIY ideas to paint your very own fireworks.

#1 Fireworks painting using spray cans

What you will need:

  • Black paper
  • A pencil
  • Nippon Paint Pylox Spray Paint in bright colours
  • (Optional) Nippon Paint Odour-less Premium all-in-1 interior wall paint in black
  • (Optional) Nippon Paint painting brush

Use a pencil to draw a silhouette of the beautiful skyline of Singapore onto a piece of black paper. Carefully cut out the silhouettes (make two sets of each design). Flip 1 set of the silhouettes over (so that you won’t see the lines) and paste them on your wall.

Use colour spray cans and make splashes of colours for your fireworks. Once completed, remove the silhouette cut-outs and leave your walls to dry overnight.

Take the second set of silhouettes and paste them on the wall, or paint in the cityscape in black.

#2 Fireworks painting using toilet paper rolls

What you will need:

  • 3 to 5 toilet paper rolls
  • A tray for holding paint
  • Nippon Paint Odour-less Premium all-in-1 interior wall paint in bright colours

Recycle your toilet paper rolls and turn them into a fireworks stamp! Start by cutting slits around one side of the toilet paper roll and then cut a slit all the way through to open it up.

Roll the toilet paper tightly and tape the uncut side of the toilet paper roll.

Pull back the slits so that it spreads out like fireworks. Dip the toilet paper roll into the paint colour of your choice and start stamping your walls with “fireworks” you created.

Nippon Paint Pylox Spray Paint

With a wide selection of colours in gloss, metallic and fluorescent finishes, Pylox quick-dry performance spray paint not only protects, it can also restore or transform surfaces to create a fresh, new look.

Nippon Paint Odour-less Premium all-in-1 interior wall paint

Not only does it have all-in-1 properties such as washability, coverage of hairline cracks and anti-bacterial properties, it has almost no odour during and after painting and a near-zero VOC, or volatile organic content level.

Tips for a fuss-free and fun painting experience:

  • Prepare now, worry less later.
    • Assemble all your painting tools ahead of time, and save the hassle of having to find containers to wash up later.
    • Use protective sheets and masking tape to cover all exposed surfaces before you start. That means items like sockets and switches, as well as the floor. Gloves or caps can be helpful too to keep your hands and hair clean during painting.
  • If you are working with spray cans, make sure that the area is well-ventilated.
