Method cont.

  1. It is best to leave this to dry before using another colour. You can continue on straight away but the colours may blend together.

  2. Choose the next colour and apply to the picture. Make sure you overlap the colours, so that when you pull your glue painting off the bag it will all come away as one piece of art.

  3. Once complete, you can add detail such as an outline in black.

  4. When completely dry, carefully peel the design off the plastic bag.

  5. These can be stuck onto windows and mirrors for fun, funky and effective original art.
