Once again we are all in sync. I just completed,recompleting a project with a
first grade class due to teh fact that the tissue paper we had beeen getting
for many years was replaced with a cheaper version that does not bleed.
Needless to say I think my ARGHHHH !!! was heard all over the school as I
peeked under the dry tissue on their crayon cats only to see very faint wimpy
hints of color. I went to the package to read that teh budget committee had
replaced it with the same brand but a version that is specifically non
So in the next class I showed the children what happened and they gladly
redidi the tissue and water part of the lesson. They are beautiful jewel like
tie-dyed kitties now !!

Dick Blick Art Materials
A great resource for art materials.
Dick Blick Art Tissue non bleeding.

Spectra Deluxe Art Tissue bleeds beautifully with water (if that's what you
desire !)

Hope this helps, from now on I will diligently look up any supplies that come
in with different packaging from previous year. to avoid any more ARGHHHHH's!!
