Product Description

Spectra Bleeding Art Tissue is a fine-quality deluxe-grade tissue that color bleeds when wet, making it easy to create arts and crafts projects with a beautiful watercolor look. Great for children's projects!

You can paint with Spectra Deluxe Art Tissue! Wet with a brush and wash beautiful, translucent color on to the paper. Overlap two colors and watch them blend. Or add glue to the water to hold specific shapes in place and create magnificent, multi-layered effects.

The high-quality tissue can withstand cutting, crinkling and folding without tearing. Recyclable.

We discovered this paper from pre-school teachers that were asking for it. The colors in the papers are pretty basic but like watercolor they blend beautifully. There doesn't seem to be any restrictions on what kind of fabric this will work on and it also does very nice designs on paper. You lay torn/ripped or cut  paper down on the fabric (ripping paper is fun and satisfying) Spray the paper with water and if you want darker colors use another layer of paper over the first and spray again. Some instructors say use lemon juice to spray on the paper. The tissue paper needs to be thoroughly saturated so sometimes it's easier if you use a shallow tray to lay the fabric in for less mess. Let it dry overnight. When the paper is dry, just take it off the fabric and either use for a paper collage or recycle. The colors are bright initially. Ironing seems to keep more color in the fabric, but the colors are not wash-fast so expect a fair amount of bleeding and fading if washed. It's very unique looking on silk scarves and cloth that is not washed, such as quilts (to be displayed, not used) as wall hangings, sun catchers, and such. The pre-school teachers were using them for mother's day scarves and they were raving about the colors, and how happy the moms were. Pre-soaking the silk scarves in vinegar, and steaming or microwaving them after the tissue color is applied does make it more wash-fast on silk only. Another suggestion was to cut out shapes that could be wetted then left in the sun to dry, leaving an impression from the cut out design.

Pre-treated my silk with vinegar and water. 14 c vinegar 1 qt water) then used torn tissue on the silk and got amazing results. Set the color using the microwave for 6 minutes. After it dryed did a quick wash in synthropol and cold water and none of the color faded. I was amazed. Quick easy method to dye silk.

I love this tissue paper. Its like getting two items for the price of one. It bleeds beautiful colors on paperfabric or lace and then you can use the tissue when dry to decoupage with.

I used this product with my students on silk scarves I bought from Dharma. I found that adding soda ash to the water and vinegar mixture help to set the tissue paper dye. I washed them and a little dye came out but the colors stayed bright.
