Rice Painting - Contributor Post

Do you have vinegar, rice and food coloring? Then you have an afternoon of entertainment! Samantha from Heart-shaped Leaves gives a tutorial that even I can follow!

A while ago, a friend of mine passed on a link to a tutorial for colored rice and I was intrigued. So I bought the necessary ingredients (rice, vinegar and food coloring) and set Jack up at the table. We poured I think it was 2 tbsps of vinegar into four small bowls and then added 4 drops of food coloring. Then we added 1 tbsp of rice and let it soak.

After soaking we drained the rice and sat that out to let it dry.

After it had dried we went in search of the glue only to be unable to find it. This drove me crazy, but I still forget to buy any when I went to the store. Fast forward to later that week when I accidentally found the glue in the box where I looked earlier. I still haven't found the glue stick though.

So I set Jack back up at the table, this time with heavy paper (I used the back side of some watercolor paper), the rice, glue and a paintbrush. The only suggestions I gave him were to keep in mind that lots of glue meant longer drying times and that he couldn't glue the paintbrush to the paper.
