Iridescent Art grab
  • black construction paper

  2. Completely submerge the black construction paper in the water.
  3. Use the brush to drip one drop of clear nail polish onto the center of the water (not the paper!)
  4. The nail polish will spread out into a thin film.
  5. Lift the paper out of the water and the film will stick.
