liquid watercolor or food coloring
-First, spread shaving cream on the table the size of your paper
-Then drip the paint directly on the shaving cream where you want your cactus to go
- Then drip blue and turquoise paint around the green drips for the sky
-finally a few tiny drips of yellow for moon and stars, plus red or pink for the flowers
Next you will use the back end of a paint brush to make tiny swirls. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT that the brush TOUCHES the table and stands STRAIGHT UP, if it leans and isn't straight up and down it will not work
Lift the paper
When you are finished with the print you can use watercolor pencils dipped in water to outline your cactus. You can also use pan watercolors to fill in the edges or add more color. Another fun material to use is Reeves water soluble oil pastels dipped in water.
Clean up is always the BEST PART for this project!!!
