The addition of landscape or cityscape silhouettes and glow-in-the-dark glitter glue add even more dimension when you turn the lights out! Blick Essentials Tempera Step 1: In a small paper cup, squeeze out just enough paint to cover the bottom. Create a pool in the center with a second color. Repeat, squeezing paint into the center of each color, forming a "bullseye." Step 2: Turn the cup upside-down on top of a canvas panel and allow the paint to flow out into a puddle. If desired, add glitter glue to the top. Step 3: Hold the panel upright and rotate it, allowing the paint to run in all directions until the panel is covered. Step 4: Cut a silhouette of a landscape or cityscape from black paper and glue it to the front of the paint poured panel. Glow-in-the-dark poured paintings rival the wonder of the Northern Lights
