How to paint a rainbow

HOW-TO MAKE A

Painted Rainbow

1. Choose and mix your colours with water.

2. Paint stripes of each colour onto a clean, just damp sponge.


3. Press the sponge lightly, colour side down onto the surface to be painted. Without lifting the sponge, spread the colour in a rainbow shape.


*this method can be used with any water based paint, e.g. face-paint works especially well on an arm in an 'S' shape, or use the idea as a background for an eye design.
