Follow the steps below and you'll be on your way to making your own mashed up masterpiece!
Card Stock (or other heavy paper)
Painters Tape (optional)
Estimated Time: 30 Minutes to 1.5 hours
First, use your paintbrush to moisten the paper with acetone.
Second, lay your image ink-side down and use your popsicle stick to burnish it into the acetone. The longer you rub the photo, the more ink will be absorbed into the card stock below.
Be careful not to lift the image until you're done. You can tape down the edges of the picture so it doesn't move.
Third, slowly lift you image off the card stock. It may stick a little, so be gentle!
Fourth, once you've filled up your card stock with images, use the watercolors to paint an image on top of the photos. Want to see something magic? Drop some acetone on still-wet watercolor and watch what happens!
