|My daughter made this one as a sample|
Today our county had what we call Project Workshop Day for our 4H'ers. I usually teach a cake decorating class but this year decided to do something new and exciting, but probably just as messy! I taught about how water and oil don't mix, and why and tied it all in with the oil spill....it was pretty fun, had a lot more kids in my classes than planned on so I had to do a bit of scrambling....thank goodness I purchased extra's. For the project part we did a paint technique, we painted the white coats in between the experiments so it could dry a bit, then we did the dipping last. I thought the vases turned out awesome, my hands were far too messy to take photos during the class but I did catch a few of the vases before the kids took them home!

Aren't they awesome, you use a technique where you paint the base layer white, then after it has dried you pour paints in water and swirl your vase through it. Two girls used the exact same colors, did it at the same time and ended up with 2 vases that were entirely different! It's all in the swirl!!!
Now I'm thinking.....EASTER EGGS? Wouldn't they look neat?!
