Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Material
You will need:
- glass vial with a cork
- jewelry needle with a loop
- some cotton
- leather string
- acrylic colors
- silver glitter
Step 2: Preparing the Cork
Shorten the needle so it’s a little shorter than the cork. Push the needle in the center of the cork twisting it.
Step 3: Preparing the Colors
Mix the chosen acrylic colors in some water, I chose black, dark blue and purple.
Step 4: Create Your Galaxy
Place some cotton in the vial and sprinkle some glitter over it. Then pour some of the first color on the cotton. Use a dropper of a syringe to drop the color little by little, the cotton should be just soaked, not floating or completely submerged. (picture 1)
Place another layer of cotton and sprinkle some more glitter on it. Pour the second color on the cotton. (picture 2)
Place the last layer of cotton and again sprinkle the glitter. Pour the third color and close the vial with the cork. (picture 3)
Pull the leather string through the loop and you’re done. (last three pictures)
Enjoy you gorgeous new pendant!
