What you need:

  • 2x small plastic water squirter *Note: You need big enough hole to squeeze the paint through.
  • 1 x Jasart large canvas
  • News papers
  • Jasart hot glue gun
  • The Paperhouse Liviano A3 Card (plain or coloured) – enough to cut 6 x little rectangles
  • Reeves Metallic Silver paint
  • Reeves Metallic Gold paint
  • Reeves Blue paint
  • A little bit of tap water
  • Celco Scissors

Tip: An alternative to the canvas is using a big piece of thick cardboard.

What you do:

  1. Paste shreds of newspaper over your canvas.
  2. Cut out 6 small rectangles out of your colour cardboard and super glue them onto the canvas in an evenly spaced straight line.
  3. Fill up one of the water guns with an even mix of blue and metallic silver paint. Add a little water and shake well. TIP: Test the gun out on a blank piece of paper to check that it squirts properly.
  4. 4. Squirt the canvas with the first water gun in all different directions. Fill up your second water gun with some metallic gold, add a little water and shake well. Then squirt the canvas in all different directions. Tip: If you want to add more colours, just wash out the water gun and add another colour.
