As an aside, before I show you the latest happenings from the paper dying project: I never realised when I embarked on this it would become so all-consuming. I thought maybe a day of tearing, soaking, dripping, swishing, squishing and waiting would be followed up by a few hours of drying, unfolding, oooh-ing n ahhh-ing, then straight on to using and gluing and making.
Nope. Anyways, I’ll explain as I go along.
Having filtered out the papers deemed ‘not quite done’ I was left with a fairly substantial heap of partly-colored insipid stuff to re-dye. In a bid for something different I explored some new techniques.
Putting bits in a jar instead of a tray (done this with fabric, but not paper before)
Using pre-cut-out bits of paper
Using small things to add a bit of pattern. These wire coils were leftover from a previous project…
Ditto with rice (thinking – will absorb moisture as well as leaving rice-shape-patterns)
And again, with buttons
I haven’t looked at the latest results yet, check back later and find out if any of this worked out!!

Yes, it will all work, but maybe not as you expect….
Hi there, thanks for joining in this colorful journey! I’ve more or less stopped having expectations about these games, now I have curiosity and, what I can only call, inklings! 😉
can’t wait to see what happens =)
