Create holiday ornaments from your living paintings made with colorful bacteria! Great for science class, visual arts class, or as a fun and easy science and art exercise at home.
Using a special edition Canvas kit and Keep-it kit, turn your living paintings into ornaments you can hang on your tree, table centerpieces, anywhere you wish!
To learn more about the Canvas Kit, a fun first step into learning about biotechnology, genetic engineering, and an exciting new branch of art called BioArt by painting with colorful bacteria, see the Canvas kit listing.
To learn more about the Keep-it kit, used to preserve Petri dishes, see the Keep-it kit listing.
While you do not need any specialized laboratory equipment to complete this kit, a DNA Playground or Classroom incubator can be used to incubate the paintings for easy and remarkable results. If you do not have an incubator, you can place your Petri dishes in the bags provided in a warm spot.

What else is needed?
Cleaning and safety supplies are not included in the kit. Necessary safety and cleaning supplies are latex or nitrile gloves, and a chlorinated bleach cleaner or a 10% solution of chlorinated bleach in a spray bottle (you can make this by adding 9 parts water to 1 part bleach in a spray bottle). You can add a Mini Safety Set to your kit which includes gloves and a reusable plastic apron to protect your clothes.
For more information about safety, set up and clean up, you can have a look at the instruction manual for the experiment linked in the Ressources section below, and at the "Practicing safe science" page.
