Waterdrop art...

with the splashes of water on a mirror during the snow play the other day... it got me interested to play a little more and explore...

so this time armed with a mirror water and a pipette I started to make lots of little drops... then went off to make coloured water too... to see how that would affect my transient art...
well a half hearted approach to art... some of it was a conscious effort to make patterns and then suddenly swept by the idea to test  how big I could make a drop... how close I could put the drops without them merging, what happened if I merged two different colours... could I make lines etc etc

This is a great exploration for children... using their fine motor skills to control the speed of water coming out of the pipette... and so easy to wipe dry and start again and again.

I used food colouring, just a tiny drop to give the water a blue hint. It could be fun to try and make a rainbow out of waterdrops... or try paint in this way too...

Here is a film I put together of the drops on the mirror
