Quick “Tie Dye” Technique
I love Aqua Pigments. There are so many ways you can use them. For this technique I simply added a little spray spout (you can find little travel size spray bottles in a variety of stores). I simply replaced the eyedropper lid with the spray nozzle.
Next I grabbed the circle in my Circle Foundation dies and cut it out of my scrap cardstock. I skipped a size and used every other size for the next 3 circles and cut them out of scrap cardstock.
I grabbed my spray box/bucket. I lined it with paper towels and laid my fiber paper on top.
I placed the next largest circle in the center of the panel and sprayed it with Neon Yellow Aqua Pigment. Remember this is tie dye, it’s okay if you have some overspray. I did sort of push my finger down to avoid getting a lot of spray underneath the circle. Remove the circle.
I went to the next size circle and centered it. I sprayed with Neon Red Aqua Pigment
If you have a gap you need to fill in a little bit, Simply use a paint brush and the excess Aqua Pigment left on the circle to close it up a bit.
I placed the last circle in the center and sprayed it with Neon Orange Aqua Pigment. Remove the circle. For the center I sprayed a little more of the Neon Yellow Aqua Pigment. Use a paper towel to lightly dab the panel.
Spritz with water to allow the colors to bleed together a little bit more. If you want to dab it again, do it very lightly as this is a very porous material and you will lose a lot of color if you press.
I like to use my heat tool to help it to dry a little faster. Just be sure not to stay in one spot too long.
Imagine how many fun color combinations and Aqua Pigment varieties you could work with. The possibilities are endless!
