- A glass plate, bowl, or picture frame
- Dry erase marker
- Draw a simple picture on the glass. A stick figure is a good one to start with
- Pour water onto the plate or into the bowl slowly to lift up the drawing
- Swirl the water around to make the picture dance and move
How does it work?
The marker leaves behind mixture of pigments and a type of alcohol mixed together. The alcohol dissolves and the pigments are left behind as a solid. Glass is so smooth that the solid slides right off when it gets wet!
