April Fools' Day "Spill"
Coffee on the comforter? There's no cause for alarm -- if the mess isn't real.
- White glue
- Puff paint
- Coffee-colored paint
- Parchment-lined cookie sheet
- For soda:Clear craft glue
- Red, blue, and yellow food coloring
- Cookie sheet
- Plastic ice cubes
Mix 1/4 cup white glue, 2 tablespoons puff paint, and 1 tablespoon coffee-colored paint. Place an old mug on a parchment-lined cookie sheet; drizzle the "spill" in and around mug. When dry to the touch (about 4 days), peel away paper; let dry completely, about 1 more day.
To make milk: Omit coffee-colored paint.
To make soda: Use 1/4 cup clear craft glue mixed with food coloring -- about 1 drop of red, blue, and yellow. Pour spill directly onto cookie sheet (it will peel off easily), and drop in plastic ice cubes; let dry, as above.
