I am OBSESSED with this project! I mean, it is really, really incredibly AMAZING! I think water is just awesome and beautiful. I discovered this by accident. Mercedes received a tiny water color set from her Great-Grandma for Easter, and I was using a medicine dropper to get each color wet when I discovered that the water from the medicine dropper stayed in droplets. The droplets looked so cool sitting on top of the paint colors that I decided to dye some water with different colors of food coloring and see if the droplets would stay on a piece of parchment paper. It worked great! Wax paper may work even better but I haven't tested it yet.
I gave Mercedes a bunch of colored water and a medicine dropper and she went to work! Seriously, I can't say enough good things about this project. It is just really so incredible!
I could not resist making a bunch of my own art while Mercedes was working on hers.
Seriously...these tiny droplets are just gorgeous and making art with them is so fun!
