Tie Dye Paper
February 27th, 2012 by Craftylocks

 

To be completely honest, this should be called ‘Dip Dye Paper’ as there is not a single bit of tied paper involved – but it sort of follows the tie dye fabric look that we are familiar with – so I will run with it!

You will need a sheet of tissue or similar paper and 3 colors of food coloring

Fold the sheet of tissue in a concertina.

Fold a triangle at one edge.

Continue folding triangles until you are left with a small triangle parcel.

Dip each point into a different colour dye and let it soak in so there is no more white visible.

Give the parcel a gentle squeeze to get rid of the excess dye – do this between sheets of newsprint and keep the parcel flat. Leave overnight to dry.

Be very careful when you unwrap the sheet as it will tear easily if it is still damp.
