[VIRTUAL] Bleeding Tissue Paper Craft

Miss Emily came up with this fun watercolor art painting idea while staying at home and she wants to share it with all of you!

You will need:

  • Watercolor paper or canvas
  • Tissue paper
  • Scissors
  • Sharpie/permanent marker (if you choose to draw a design first)
  • Spray bottle with water or vinegar (both work equally well)


  1. If you choose, draw a design on the canvas with the Sharpie.
  2. Spray the canvas with water or vinegar.
  3. Cut tissue paper into various size pieces (shape does not matter) and flatten on the canvas. Add additional water or vinegar once the paper is flat.
  4. Let dry. Remove tissue paper.

Emily recommends using more than one layer of tissue paper to increase color saturation.

Happy crafting!
