These clever sheets provide the satisfaction of painting without the mess. They’re reusable, so they can be enjoyed again and again.

Key Features:

  • 5 reusable painting sheets - dry them out and use again!
  • Just add water and a beautiful garden-related image will start to appear.
  • Provides stimulation and encourages dexterity.

The Aquapaints set has been adapted to make painting an even more dementia-friendly activity. You simply paint water directly onto the paining sheets and a colourful image will start to appear. As the image dries the picture disappears, and the sheet is ready to use again! This means all someone needs to get started is a pot of water and a paintbrush and they’ll be able to enjoy the gratification of creating a piece of art.

Painting is a great pastime for people living with dementia; holding a paint brush is good for dexterity, and the act of creating something is a pleasurable and therapeutic experience. Its great for conversation as they can start to describe the image that appears as they work, and the beautiful images will provide a real sense of accomplishment upon completion.

The In the Garden painting sheets feature a blue bird, a rose bush, hedgehog, lawn mower and fresh vegetables, aiming to prompt conversation about days spent in the garden.

Excellent product. Can be used both one-to-one and in groups.

We have used these before at sessions and found them to be excellent. It was for this reason that we ordered what I consider to be a very worthwhile and useful aid to sparking an interest for my husband whose career was spent as a technical artist.
