How to make

Step 1

Open your mason jar, and fill a third full with water. Add a small amount of one colour of ready mixed paint.

Step 2

Stir until the paint is mixed in fully.

Step 3

Fluff up your cotton wool or toy stuffing a bit, then put it into the jar.

Step 4

Top up with a little more water so you have about two thirds of the jar full.

Step 5

Shake some glitter into your jar – you will need about a teaspoon or so.

Step 6

Top up your jar with another colour of paint – I chose pink.

Step 7

Do not stir – let it swirl around but do not mix the colours.

Step 8

Finally, top up with your third, darkest, colour. Screw the lid on tightly, and you're ready to go!
