  • Step 1Prepare your work area. There will be some over spray from the spray bottles so remember to use your splash mat.
  • Step 2Begin by placing a layer of your paper shapes onto the banner. Make sure you use a mixture of shapes and space them out.
  • Step 3Place a second and third layer of shapes onto the banner making sure to overlap some in previous layers (the shapes on the layers closest to the banner will be the clearest to see in the end).
  • Step 4Pour the different coloured food dyes into the spray bottles and begin spraying the dye around the shapes.
  • Step 5Remove the top layer of shapes and continue to spray around the remaining shapes.
  • Step 6Remove the second layer of shapes and spray some more.
  • Step 7Finally remove the last layer of shapes and allow your banner to dry.
  • You could research the techniques used by Aboriginals when creating their rock paintings. This is a great group activity.
