Torn Tissue Design

Materials

  • Tissue paper
  • White glue
  • Paintbrush
  • White poster board
  • Acrylic polymer (optional)
  • Synthetic paintbrush (optional)

Directions

  1. Have your child tear various colors of tissue paper into large pieces.
  2. Brush white glue thinned with water onto the back of each piece and arrange them on a piece of white poster board.
  3. Show your child how to create new colors by overlapping two pieces of different tissue paper; yellow over red makes orange, light blue over pink makes purple, and so on.
  4. To give a nice sheen to the finished product, coat it with an acrylic polymer using a synthetic paintbrush (available at an art supply store).
