What You Need:
What You Do:
- Tissue paper (different colors)
Note: Some tissue papers are non-bleeding. You want to have at least some papers that are labeled "colors bleed when wet".
12" x 18" Spectra Deluxe Art Tissue Asst. (pack of 50)
- Bristol board (poster board -- thick paper)
- Glue (or Modge Podge)
- Container for water
- Tear many pieces of tissue paper and put them aside.
- Mix some water and a touch of glue (just enough to make the glue a bit runny) (more glue-less water).
- Brush a thin layer of the glue and water mixture over the bristol board.
- Lay one piece of tissue paper down at a time.
- Brush over each one with glue and water.
- The dyes in the tissue paper will begin to run together - almost like watercolors!
- Continue until the paper is full.
- Display finished work.
