Recently my brother-in-law gave me a present wrapped in the most incredible paper-it was Batik or possibly tie dyed. Which ever I’ve been enthralled and have been trying various techniques.
Checking different videos, I noticed that if you drop food coloring onto paper towels, it spreads and leaks through to the surface below. After laying down a piece of plastic (a trash can bag), I placed a sheet of paper-the kind they wrap glass in at the store-and
towel on top of it. I used cheap food colors and dropped color splotches all
over. While some of it bled through to the paper, I wanted more of an effect.

I should have sprayed lightly with water, but since I didn’t want to look for a spray bottle, I doused it with way more water than needed. It bled in all sorts of directions and ended up with an interesting effect.

This is a cool video of Tie Dying for a notebook. Can think of a lot of cool ways to use this.
