The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts.

Building your plane.
1. Remove the spring from your clothespin and glue the two pieces together. 2. Take your medium size craft stick and glue 1 on top of your clothespin and 1 below. These will become your airplane's wings. 3. Add a small craft stick at the base of your plane for the tale wing. 4. Cut a small piece of craft stick at an angle for your tale fin and attach.
Paint your plane and add duct tape or washi tape stripes to the wings.
The key to a good scrape painting is a plastic putty knife. You can find these at the hardware store on the cheap.
For this rainbow scrape painting we veered away from the typical primary colors you find in most rainbows and opted for some tropical tones... neon pink, bright orange, light blue, turquoise, pale pink, violet, red, and pale yellow.
Place a small dot of color and pull it toward you with your putty knife. You can arch your mark, drag it an angle, add short pull strokes or long. One hand is holding your paper down while your writing hand drags with steady, even pressure. Continue this "drop of color and pull" until you have a layered, full rainbow print.
You probably won't be able to stop at one!
Time to fly the painted sky! You can attach your plane with a drop of hot glue or glue dots.
