About This Class

25856e07

Welcome to very first SkillShare class! I'm Abigail, and in this class, I'll be teaching you how to make your very own galaxy in a bottle. Although they look hard to make, galaxies in a bottle are actually quite easy to create yourself.

I will be teaching you how to do a miniature version, but you are welcome to do the same thing on a larger scale.

Here is what you will need:
- Food coloring or liquid watercolors

- A jar (size of your choosing)

- An eyedropper

- Cottonballs

- Glitter

- Glue or clear nail polish

- Toothpick or skewer

Most of these items can be purchased at a craft store, online, or at your local dollar store.
