How to Make

  1. Firstly, print the template onto black card or draw your own design.
  2. Then trace the lines with super tacky glue.
  3. Sprinkle fine salt over the glue and gently shake off the excess.
  4. Once the glue is completely dry, mix your watercolours so that they are watery.
  5. Dip your paintbrush in the watercolour paint and gently touch it to the salt that you wish to colour, the salt will soak the paint up.
  6. Allow to dry fully before moving and displaying your artwork.
  7. Add glow in the dark wiggle eyes to create a spooky effect!
