How to Make

  1. Firstly, using a glue dot temporarily stick a small paper plate inside the salad spinner.
  2. Squirt various colours of rainbow acrylic paint onto the small paper plate and then secure the lid on top and spin the handle.
  3. When you remove the lid, you will be left with an abstract design on your paper plate. Remove the paper plate and wait for it to dry.
  4. Using the template cut out the snail body, snails underbelly and rosy cheeks. Use a different colour for the under belly for contrast.
  5. Stick the underbelly onto the bottom of the snail.
  6. Stick the rosy cheeks and giant eyes to the snail and draw a smile with a black pen.
  7. Lastly stick the snails shell onto the body using super tacky glue.
