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.

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 expect a fair amount of 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) and wall hangings. 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. 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.

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.

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 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.

Used this for dyeing silk scarves using a 50% white vinegar spray sadly final product bleeds. Ironing air dried scarves for 10 mins then wash in cold got colored water even after many rinses. Tried using textile detergent still ran colors. Tried a vinegar bath to set the colors no luck. Frustrating.

I was very disappointed in the tissue dying on silk. I wasmaking scarves. I usually use the set a silk ink that iseasily set with an iron and when rinsed out does not bleed.I set this with the dryer and also the iron and it just bled and bled. The scarves turned out very pretty but if someone is wearing one and it gets wet it will stain whatever they are wearing under it. Better used as decoupage I guess.

I like the idea of this so I tried it out and the colors were pretty muted for my tastes.The important part of the information provided is it doesn't wash well. The color mostly washes out.That said it would probably be great as decoupage or even gift wrap but it's stillgoing to charity.
