Make Your Own!

To make your own mud painting, Just do the following!

  • Find a clear soda bottle
  • Collect your mud (shovel, bucket, and an eye for anything that is different from anything else and scoop!)
  • Get some chalk (it acts as a pH buffer), some eggs (the more eggs, the stinkier, so beware), and some shredded newspaper (it's like microbial potato chips - fast energy).
  • Mix it all together, cover the soda bottle opening w seranwrap and an elastic band, and place it in your window!
  • Daydream like Winogradsky and conceive of the "Cycle of Life".

Or go to these resources for methods.
