Directions

  1. Remove the plastic insert from the salad spinner and place a small paper plate in the bottom.
  2. Replace the insert on top of the paper plate.
  3. Dribble a little paint into the spinner, put the lid on, and spin.
  4. If you like, add another color or two and spin some more for a nice effect.
