Tissue Paper Technique

“This same technique can also be used with: saran wrap, kite string and medical gauze. For a soft subtle look follow exact instructions. For a more intense look place anything flat and heavy over your wet painting and weight down with some books. Leave for anywhere to 3 days to a whole week”.

Layer as follows:

paper, paint, material, anything plastic, something hard and flat (cardboard, cutting board, wood, etc.) add weight and let dry.

Experiment, experiment, experiment!

Happy Painting!
