Liquid Watercolor Paint

Reuse old markers and turn them into watercolor paints!
When I was younger, I used to paint with everything I had at hand. Paints, chalks, markers, crayons. There was no such technique that I didn't try I was even attending extra art classes. Thanks to my parents I had opportunities to develop my interests. Well, despite my efforts, I'm still a weak painter, but it doesn't bother me to paint with my friends’ children. It’s still a big fun for me.

Jackie - the owner of ‘Happy Hooligans’ and a great teacher, figured out that it was possible to reuse old markers. She collected them and turned into watercolor paints. So now she has another painting method to practice with toddlers, which she takes care of every day. I case you are a teacher or parent of kids who feel passionate about painting, check out the tutorial of making Sidewalk Chalks.
