I have some creative projects for school. So, in that way, I got DNA model as my assessment. It is pretty interesting. So, lets get started.
How to make a model of DNA
♣ White Chart paper
♣ Pastels [6 colours]
♣ Black acrylic paint and paint brush
♣ Pencil,ruler and some skill and time
Collect the materials.
|Materials for DNA model|
Take your Chart paper and a scissor.
Cut 2 strips of chart paper with equal width and length.

Now, time for the favourite part of painting. Take your little black paint and colour the strips with a paint brush.

Now, Paper Curling. It is a simple easy way. We just need to fold the strips in a curly way.
|Curl it off|
The curls would be like this.....Pretty easy!! Isn't it.

Now again cut a strip of chart paper. Now this paper would be used for the purines and pyrimidines.

Then just take your pastels and start colouring.
Here is the coloring rules:
No colour must come in a same row. If you use Red and Yellow in a piece, then you must need to follow coloring red and yellow or yellow and red in a piece. So, I have used Red and yellow [or yellow and red] and Violet and green [ or green and violet].
|Colouring the strips|
Start inserting the strips with the help of a glue into the DNA helix without actually disturbing the curls.
Just continue until you finish it off completely.
Tada!! The DNA is ready in no time...
