Paper Towel, Markers and 💦Water 🌈 Color Mixing ⚗️Experiment (🔬⚗️⚖️Science meets 🎨Art 101 🎥Series 🎇)

Today, we are exploring colors while creating patterns on a paper towel, and thereafter experimenting with water and color mixing, coming up with a new art piece, different than the original.

What you will need:

  • paper towel (we are using Bounty),
  • Sharpies (buy thin point here and thick here), markers and/or highlighters,
  • droppers (we are using silicone bulb dropper from this set),
  • water.

The water travels through paper diluting and mixing colors. This process is similar to our Capillary Action Science Experiment below, where I describe the process in details.
