Syringe Art, Rorschach, and Tragedy

At the stake carnival last night, I saw a sign that said, "Syringe Art." I figured that even though my artistic abilities are not that awesome, I'm pretty good with a syringe, so why not give it a shot? (pun! and that wasn't even on purpose if you can believe it).

So what exactly is syringe art? Basically you put a little paint in a syringe and then shoot it at a piece of paper. This is what mine looked like.  
But then I thought it would be infinitely fun if I folded it in half to make it symmetrical. And we ended up with this beautiful amateur Rorschach test* in full color. I was really pleased with how it turned out.
(The talented Ms Fotohok took that photo, props to her)
I wish I had taken a picture before I put it in my bag to take it home because by the time I got home, it was stuck together and the paper tore when I unfolded it. But just trust me, in it's prime, it was gorgeous. 

According to the girl in charge, a Child Life student at the U, they do this with the kids in the hospital to make the kids feel more comfortable with hospital equipment. 
Do they take volunteers? Where do I sign up?
