Neon paints make this straw sculpture pop! This project also has an instructional video available!


  • Step 1
    Using Chromacryl Students' Neon Acrylic, paint 18 straws; 3 each of all 6 colors. Some colors may require more than one coat.

  • Step 2
    Once paint is dry, cut straws to different lengths and glue the first layer of your design on to an 8" square Fredrix Cut Edge Canvas Panel. Using a high quality glue like Aleene's Tacky Glue will help.

  • Step 3
    Glue more straws on top of the first layer.

  • Step 4
    Continue adding more layers as desired to finish the 3D sculpture.
