Sticky Tape and Ink Wash

This is simple activity only requiring paper, sticky tape (or masking tape) and an ink wash (food colouring and water will be fine). Ask the child to apply sticky tape to the paper in what ever way they want, then let them experience what happens when the ink is washed over the top.

The plastic of the sticky tape repels the ink leaving behind the patterns made with tape.

Beautiful effects can be made by children of all ages with this technique.
