Magic Meadow watercolor paintingTear pieces of this bright tissue and drop them onto wet watercolor paper; the color leaves the tissue and stains the paper. The colors are really brilliant so it is an easy way to get a beautiful background. Usually you draw something first, block it with masking fluid, then start the tissue. After the tissue part is dry, you use watercolors to paint what you blocked.
