What to Do

This activity gets messy! Be sure to cover your work surface before starting.

1. Use school glue to paint a sheet of clear acrylic (as found in a photo frame) or cardstock. 

2. While the glue is still wet, add drops of food coloring onto it. 

3. Use a paintbrush to spread the colors. Let dry. 

4. Place your artwork in a frame. 

Catch Some Rays! 

Hang the clear acrylic painting in a window.
