Shabbat Shalom from The Rashi School!
Here is a fun Shabbat art project you can try at home.
You'll be creating a secret Shabbat message for your family.
You'll be making your design using a Shabbat candle as a drawing material. Yes, you heard right!
The candle is made of wax, and it will stick to the paper and then push the paint away, because it is water resistant. So, let's get started. Here's what you'll need to do this project:
- Paper (the thicker the better, but regular will do)
- Cup of water
- Watercolors *
- A Shabbat candle
* Don't have watercolors? You can water down regular paint, or make your own.
-Mix spices like turmeric or cinnamon with water
-Gather two cups of flower petals (violets look great) and pour one cup of boiling water over them.
-Boil beets and use the water or juice
-Brew a strong cup of coffee (come on, we're all doing that anyway)
Shabbat Shalom, Rashi!
