more fun with biocolor courtesy of N’s preschool teacher! (okay, now i need to get some of this stuff!) this week N and her friends made awesomely colorful window decals in her summer camp.
first, the kids squirted the biocolor onto nonstick aluminum foil. N stuck with the concentric circle pattern (like the comet painting) but some kids applied it in other designs.
the kids ran forks and toothpicks through it to make radial burst patterns and swirls like these you see below.
then they allowed the biocolor paint to dry on the foil. her teacher told me it dried very quickly when out in the sun.
after they was completely dry, they peeled the dried paint off the foil carefully to reveal these very cool plasticky forms.
they can be stuck repeatedly to glass windows, but if they are heavy, the window may require a little misting of water before application to keep them on. the lighter colors (and parts with thin application) are translucent, allowing the sun to shine through the color. here are ours from the inside…
from the outside you can see the original circles N drew.
dear biocolor paint company: wanna send me some samples to review? i’ve got lots more ideas for this stuff, and discount school supply offers lots of biocolor ideas here too!
