Sharpie Spin Art

By: Lynda Heines from Bloom, Bake, and Create

With a battery operated Spin Art machine and some colored Sharpie markers, you can create beautiful artwork on paper or fabric.  This Sharpie Spin Art from Lynda Heines would look lovely on a tee shirt or canvas, and would also make a beautiful paper decoration for a scrapbook or greeting card.  If you don't have a Spin Art machine, you should be able to find one in the toy section of your local toy store or online.

sharpie spin art


  • Spinart machine. These can be purchased in the toy section or online. Make sure you buy one that is battery operated.
  • Fabric cut in 6 x 6 inch squares or paper 5.5 x 5.5 inches
  • Sharpie Large Chisel Tip Markers
  • Spray bottle with alcohol
  • Tacky repositionable glue – I used Liquid Sticky Note



  1. Place tacky glue in the center of the bottom of machine to hold fabric (paper) in place.
  2. Place fabric (paper) centered in machine and smooth it down over tacky glue.
  3. Turn on machine.
  4. Touch spinning fabric (paper) with Sharpie. Continue coloring until you are happy with your design.
  5. Turn off machine and check. If you want to add more color, turn it back on and add more.
  6. Turn off machine.
  7. Spritz fabric (paper) with the alcohol. The more you spray, the more the colors will bleed together.
  8. When dry, heat set with an iron and then it’s ready for your next project. (You don’t need to iron the paper!)
