Bleeding Tissue Paper Canvas Art 16



We are big fans of bleeding tissue paper art here.  We have even done it in the past and let rain create the art, which was great fun.  This beautiful bleeding tissue paper canvas art was created with confetti circles and is fun process art activity for kids of all ages. Plus you are left with a fab piece of art to display.

You can buy specific art tissue paper for bleeding, but we have found that some cheap tissue paper works just as well, so just do a small test.  We had a packet of balloon confetti and discovered that it bled when we placed a cup on top of it.

How to make Bleeding Tissue Paper Canvas Art

My boys are going through a sorting stage, so they started by sorting the confetti into colours, however, this would love beautiful if you just added the tissue paper confetti in random order too.

It turned out even better than we could have imagined.  We love the rainbow effect and also just how vivid all the colours (except the pale blue) were when they transferred to the canvas.  I can see us doing this a lot more and experimenting with different patterns and shapes too.

We used a really inexpensive canvas picked up from the Pound shop, but you could also use watercolour paper too.  Rather than a hard canvas I would use a stretched canvas as the water will not over saturate it and it dries really well without warping.
