HOW TO MAKE GALAXY IN A JAR?
To make Galaxy in a Jar, you will need a jar. You can use plastic 4 oz. jars or glass jars. You can also use tiny glass jars with a cork stopper. Next, grab some cotton balls to create clouds. They will also keep the colors from mixing into one. Galaxy is usually purple or different shades of purple. You don't need purple pain to make it, just a basic set of paints and simply mix red and blue to create the desired shade of purple. Layer the colors as shown in our video. You will also need glitter to make stars. The finest, the better but you can use what you have on hand. Glittery, shiny paint is also great! Add as much or as little as you like. And remember to have FUN!
