To create your own aquatic art, start by mixing two cups of water with two packets of Aqua Illusions powder. Allow 30 minutes for the mixture to set, and select the paints you want for your background color. Instead of carefully applying the paint to your canvas, channel your inner Pollock and dip your brush in the paint, spattering it onto the water. Use the included wand to mix and swirl the colors to form a multicolored collage.

Accentuate your coloring by using the mixing wand to create designs like flowers. These shapes will float on top of your existing colors to make a uniquely abstract piece of art. When your masterpiece is complete, transfer your art to paper by dipping a piece of the included paper into the water for five seconds. You’ll be left with a piece of art you can proudly display.

Aqua Illusions lets you paint on water!

Experimentation encouraged

One of the advantages of creating pictures on a dynamic surface like water is that you can quickly and easily make more creations! Instead of throwing out your previous canvas, you can reuse the existing background colors and add new designs to create a new project.
