- White Glue
- Acrylic paint
- Wax paper
- Wooden Craft Sticks
- Paper Plate (optional – this may come in handy if you need to move your craft)
- Pour white glue into the bottom of the cup (not too much, just enough to fill the cup about 1 inch full).
- Add in the acrylic paint and stir with wooden craft stick. You may need to add more acrylic paint depending on how light or dark you want your spill to be.
- Lay out a sheet of wax paper. When paint is thoroughly mixed into the glue mixture, pour spill onto wax paper, be sure not to pour the spill too close to the edge of the wax paper -you’ll need enough room for the spill to flow out onto the wax paper. Lay cup flat onto the wax paper, making sure the glue mix and the cup make a connection. You want the cup and glue to be connected so it looks real.
Tip: If the spill is not pouring out well you may need to try one of two techniques. Tip the cup up on an angle to allow the glue mixture to flow out easier. Coax glue out with wooden craft stick. Or, if your mixture appears too thick, add a very tiny bit of water, mix to check consistency. Acrylic paint may need to be added to brighten color.
The bad thing about this project is it takes about 1-2 weeks to fully dry. So be sure to not use a huge amount of glue and allow plenty of time to dry so it’s ready for April Fool’s Day. Happy pranking!
