Resene kids art with Mark Rayner - Project 115

Difficulty level: Moderate

You will need: Bamboo skewers cut to 40mm lengths (you might need a grown up to do this), Paintbrush, Resene Art Action Quick Dry, Resene testpots of Resene All Black, Resene Bowie, and Resene Root Beer, Self-hardening modelling clay

Top tip: If you don’t have any bamboo skewers use craft matchsticks instead or even twigs from the garden.

Here's another idea: This cool goldfish was made from self-hardening modelling clay and painted with Resene Alabaster, Resene Nero and Resene Sorbus.
