Craft Time, Soaking Colors

We made color blend flowers.

First take a coffee filter.  And color on it.  As little or as much as you want.  The more color the more blending and design you get.

 Here's before...

 Then we dipped the edges in water, and let the paper soak up the water, blending the colors together while it did that.  Here's how I dipped the paper.
It doesn't need to go in the water that far.  So just a shallow amount on a small plate is fine.

 Or at first I laid a small edge in there at a time so we could watch the color blends a little better.  But the above way was much faster and you could still see the difference in from beginning to end.

Then lay it flat and let it dry.  Here are all three that we did.

Next I twisted together the middle and taped it to a straw.

And then put them in a vase!  Flowers that will last a long time. :)
This is the one I did, before and after.  See all the blue in there, I did not use a blue marker at all.  Neat way to show the color blends.

Happy Crafting!
