and once there done with there master piece ,snap a picture and get the hose out and
spray.It all washes away easy peasy..
Making it could get a bit messy but kids love to mix in the mixture and help out pouring .
- Tempera Paint (use primary,and mix secondary colors)
- Plaster of Paris
- Wrapping Paper Tubes
- Wax Paper
- Masking Tape
- Sandwich baggies (for piping bags)
Cut the tube into 5 inch segments. Line the interiors with wax paper, tape the base to seal one end, and set aside.The following recipe is for one color .
Mix 2-3 tablespoons of tempera paint with 1/2 cup of water. Stir in 3/4 cup of plaster of Paris. Spoon the mixture into a sandwich baggy and snip the end. Squeeze the contents into the tube. Prop straight up (I used the masking tape ring to support my 6 tubes).
Allow to dry at room temperature for at least 12 hours. Enjoy!
