  • Sealable sandwich bag
  • Paint (two or three colors)
  • String
  • 11-by-17-inch heavyweight paper
  • Weight



  1. Cut the string into one-yard lengths.
  2. Fold the paper in half.
  3. Place the string into the sealable bag, leaving about one-inch of string sticking out.
  4. Choose two or three colors of paint to squirt into the bag.
  5. Seal the bag (leaving the inch of string still sticking out). Knead until the rest of the string is covered in paint.
  6. Open the bag and remove the string, being careful to only touch the unpainted end.
  7. Arrange the string on one side of the paper.
  8. Fold the paper and place a weight over the paper. A heavy book in a plastic bag works well.
  9. Gently pull the string out and unfold the paper to reveal the art.
