Days of Play--Tie-Dye Paintings

What you'll need:

  • watercolor paper
  • water color paints
  • water
  • salt
  • cookie sheet
  • newspaper
What to do:

  1. Line a table with newspapers.
  2. Take the cookie sheet and put water in it.
  3. Dip the watercolor paper into the water.
  4. Lay the wet paper on the newspaper covered table.
  5. Apply paint with paint brushes.
  6. Watch the colors run and blur together in a tie-dye effect.
  7. Add a dash of salt here and there and see how it "soaks up" the paint.
  8. Let dry.
  9. When the pictures are dry, use a felt tipped marker and add detail.

I DO NOT like comments. Whatever you do, don't leave me a comment about this post or your thoughts or any connections you have to what I wrote. Seriously, I don't care.
(Did that reverse psychology work???)
