Acrylic water (optional) or clear school glue as growth medium
Acrylic paint or dye (optional) to color growth medium
Puff paint (to create the growing bacteria and such)
How to make the Petri Dish
Either mix acrylic water (parts A and B) according to manufacturer’s instructions or take clear school glue and optionally mix a little bit of yellow or red acrylic paint in it (not much, you just want a hint).
Pour a small layer into lip balm container. I only used the lid of the container, but you can use the bottom part, if you want to be able to close it later. This will be your “growth medium”. Let dry/cure.
Take your puff paint (you can use multiple colors) and dot and streak across the “growth medium”. Let dry.
