Wetting Colored Tissue Papers In Mixed Media Art

Mixed Media Art With "Bleeding" Wet Tissue Papers

Mixed Media artists who like to come up with new ideas for  making papers to use in collages will like this idea. Colored tissue paper is cut into strips and layered and then spritzed with a water bottle. You guessed it, the papers bleed and the random color saturation makes for great papers.

This idea was demonstrated by my friend Lynn Gall who conducted a Mixed Media Boot Camp recently at The Farmington Valley Arts Center.
