• R24910 Color Diffusing Lace Circles
• R54470 Junior Heart Paint Pipettes
• Watercolor paint
• Paint tray
• Cup of water
Fill your pipette with watercolor paint and drop the concentrated paint onto various areas of the Color Diffusing Lace Circle. In this image, I have two lace circles overlapping together. Overlapping them works well with the diffusion technology as it ensures an even spread of paint throughout the entire Lace Circle.
When you have fully painted your Lace Circles, pipette some water onto the spots of concentrated colors. This will spread the paint further throughout the Lace Circle, mixing the colors together. The process of diffusion occurs as the water pushes aside the molecules of the concentrated colors. The Color Diffusing material actually allows this to happen because the fibers are spaced further apart.
Here’s what the diffused color looks like!
Leave the Lace Circles to dry overnight.
Fold each Lace Circle in half.
Cut a length of string that will span the distance for your bunting garland.
Thread the string through the folded Lace Circles so that it rests on the inside of the fold. Secure the fold with a staple through the center of the Lace Circle.
This is what the bunting garland looks like hung up! Make enough to span the length of your classroom and string up across the room. You can adjust the colors to reflect any upcoming holiday… make green Lace Circles for Saint Patrick’s Day or red and pink ones for Valentine’s Day!
