|Paper Dyeing school paints|
: Paper – You will get the best results from absorbent papers like:
blotting paper, rice paper, coffee filter paper, paper towels
: Water Soluble dye or water based food dye.
: Eye droppers, old bowls or plastic containers.
: Rubber gloves would also be handy.
: Apron and a cover sheet or newspapers or paper towels.
Let’s get started:Put on the apron
Pour some dye into the containers making sure you have one for each colour.Fold your sheets of paper into eights or even sixteenths.
Dip a corner of the folded paper into a colour then remove it while trying not to over soak the paper.Dip another corner into the second colour and remove it.
Repeat this with the corners of the paper.Allow to dry.
TIPS:- Try cutting shapes into the paper before you dip it in the dye.
- Use and eye dropper to colour the centre of the paper.
- You could try the eye dropper on a flat unfolded sheet of paper.
