Have you tried black glue art? I love the stained glass look when the painting are finished. You can see our printable mermaid watercolor project here and even more ocean themed black glue art in this post. To go along with the under the sea theme, here is a pretty pink flamingo craft using a black glue and watercolor art technique. We have included a free printable template for creating your own.

Open the top of a half empty bottle of glue.
Squirt a good amount of black paint into the bottle. The glue will look a dark cloudy gray.
Put the lid back on and shake well.
If the glue is not shaking together, squeeze into a cup, mix and use a funnel to pour the black glue back into the bottle.
Download and print out the flamingo template.
Trace the template with black glue.
Allow the glue to dry completely. Place in the sun or allow it to dry overnight.
Use watercolors to paint the flamingo. The black glue will keep the colors from bleeding into other areas.
Allow the paint to dry completely.
Glue the entire paper onto a colored cardstock.
Your flamingo craft is finished and ready to be displayed!
