Fourth and last experiment we did was to paint with bleeding tissue paper. First you paint the fabric with a 50/50 solution of paint and water. Then you place strips of cut or torn bleeding tissue paper on the wet painted fabric. Make sure you press down or the tissue paper won't bleed. Let the fabric/tissue paper dry then take off the tissue paper. I tried the technique on the organza and loved the color and texture of the piece when dried! Because the organza was so thin, I laid a piece of white cotton under it for the painting and bleeding process. It also turned out beautiful! Without peeling off the tissue paper, I backed the bleeding tissue paper organza with a purple organza for strength and so the fabric would not ravel when cut.
Well, Beth and Rosalita decided I either was not crazy or at least crazy in the right way because we have another play date scheduled for August!
