  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to create cups of orange and white mixtures (or any other colours that you choose).
  4. Take another plastic cup and pour some of the white mixture into it. Then add the other colours, adding small amounts at a time, alternating between all the colours.
  5. Take another plastic cup and pour in small amounts of each cup of paint, alternating between the colours each time.
