- Tempera paint (or any water soluble paint)
- Dish washing liquid
- Drinking straws
- Small bowl
- Paper or cardstock
- Old newspaper or cloth to cover work area
Gather materials together. Cover the work area well as this can be a messy activity! Dilute the paint with a little water in a small bowl. The paint should be runny, yet still give a strong color. Half a cup of diluted paint will be fine for this project. Add a squirt of dish washing liquid to the paint mix (this is not a precise technique - the amount of dish washing liquid will depend on the brand used and the desired finished effect).
