Marble Painting

Supposedly *Mess-Free* idea of painting  that we attempted yesterday... It was a blast in the beginning but disappointing towards the end..They all went into the bin :(

We borrowed this idea from HERE and not sure what went wrong..please advise if we should do something differently next time (if there is a next time, that is!)

In a Heavy Duty Ziplock Freezer bag, we added equal amounts of baby oil and water-based washable paints (Thank Goodness!). Everyone chose their colors and we added some glitter...got all the air out and sealed the bags..and then used some clear tape to seal it to prevent any accidents (ehm...)










The colors started to mix together after a while of having fun. And then it turned into a brown mess. And then the bags started leaking.....and I lost my patience.....and all ended up in the bin.....SAD Ending......

I felt like I was really painting!
But when I saw that my hand was starting to get oily, I new that the tape was not sticky anymore I
just threw it away:(

I love your ideas Chachi, but this project was a kind of like garbage. I don't mean to hurt your feelings, but it didn't seem garbage in the first place.

@ U & Ru: I was excited to do this project too but for one reason or the other, it didn't work out the way it should..
In the end, I felt too that it was a waste of time, effort and paints! And the baby oil too.. I am sure Z would have enjoyed that on herself rather than what we did with it :D
Oh well.. lets learn and move on!!!

Yep. Net project, I'm gonna predict what will happen 2,220 times, right?
