Step

Step 1: Bat-ter up!

Print the bat template attached (as many times as desired). Alternatively print one, and trace a few times onto our Rains paper for a better quality and more durable end product.
Step

Step 2: Time to paint

Choose a small ball of each of the neon Mica-Dough colours. Smear the Mica-Dough thinly over your design. Work on areas of one colour first then more to the next colour. Ensure you completely cover the paper evenly.
Step

Step 3: Define the design

While the dough is still moist, draw in line, patterns and details using a stiff tool like a pencil end, pen with a pointy lid etc., but be careful as your dough is spread very thin!
Step

Step 4: Ready, Set, GLOW!

Hang your bats inside, from a tree, or tape a long squire or craft stick to the back and stick them along a path. At night (or with lights off), shine a Micador Dark Arts Magic Black Light on your bats and watch your nocturnal animals come to life!
