Introduction: The Pendelum Paintings

In this instructable, I will teach you how to create a cool painting using a pendulum motion.



1. Paint Bucket(normal paint) 2. Canvas 3. String 4. A hook to screw into the ceiling 5. A hook to connect to the paint bucket 6. Tarp

Step 1: Screw in Hook

Screw the hook into the ceiling.

Step 2: Attach String and Second Hook

Find string strong enough to hold a paint bucket and attach one end to the hook in the ceiling and the other end tie onto a different hook(this is where you will be attaching your paint bucket).

Step 3: Lay Down Tarp
