- Assorted brushes (a medium sized one will work best)
- Cup of water
1. Make a squiggly stripe across the width of your paper.
3. Make another stripe just above or below your first stripe. Try to make it really close to your first stripe, but leave a little stripe of white between. You are really working on making your stripes close to each other without running together.
4. Rinse your brush in the water. Look now my water is purple! What color is your water?
5. Keep adding stripes above and below your first stripe until your whole paper is filled. How close can you get your lines without them touching? Really work on keeping a small stripe of white between each color. Can you keep the white stripe even?
6. It's okay if some of them run together. I had that happen a few times on mine.
