Floral techniques with watercolor paper and brushes. Used both glued down
surface and pulled out the color with water. Can dry the painting and use a
pointalilt technique as well as a printing technique with the wet tissue.
just one word of caution--Colorant in the tissue is very unstable--will get
all over kids fingers and clothing--I used disposable hospital tongs and
tweezers (freebies) for kids to hold the tissue with.
Thay thought this was very scientific and cool--got some graeat results. Kids
then drew into their pieces with pen and ink.
hope this helps,
