The true magic of Relish Aquapaints is that people in the later stages of dementia are able to express themselves creatively whilst feeling a sense of joy and accomplishment. Each soothing stroke of the brush, with just a dash of water, reveals a beautiful image below.
With five carefully chosen designs including: a blue bird, a rose bush, hedgehog, lawn mower and fresh vegetables, this Aquapaint™ product aims to prompt conversation about days spent in the garden.
Spending time in nature can enhance mental wellbeing and relaxation for people with dementia, whilst helping them keep a level of independence. Best of all, when the water dries, the canvas will fade back to white ready to paint again!
