Step 1: Make a log pile

Cut thin strips of paper.

Dip them into a bowl of water and arrange them on your piece of card to look like a pile of logs.

The water lets the logs ‘stick’ to the card while we paint. Leave them there for now, we’ll come back to them later on.

Step 3: Time to get messy

Use your fingers to move the paint up and create flame shapes.

Finger paint all over the log pile and move the paint up to the top of the painting.

If the colours mix together too much you can add more blobs of yellow to make it stand out more.
