Here are a few tie-dyed deli paper backgrounds I made the other day using my Color Mists. I had originally taken photos of my step by step process to show you, but my photo card bit the dust and I lost all the pics I took *sniff*
Example 1. I folded into a squares over and over again and then sprayed some Color Mists into a small plastic container and dip the edges in and then used a pipette to add color where it didn’t soak in. Example 2. I folded into triangles until it was completely folded small and dipped once again and then used the pipettes to add color as needed. Example 3. I gathered the deli paper into the middle and twisted until it was a completely twisted like twisty paper, and then applied the Color Mist with the pipette in sections. With all of them I used a heat gun to dry as I slowly unfolded them little by little…if some areas weren’t saturated enough I used the pipette to apply more color. Once the deli paper was completely dried I used chunky foam stamps and white gesso to stamp onto the deli paper.
After, I scanned each background into my computer and created fractal backgrounds using Paint Shop Pro.
