What Are Color Diffusing Paper Feathers
Color diffusing paper is a versatile craft paper with a fabric-like texture that absorbs and blends watery liquids in wonderful ombre effects. It is available in various large precut shapes suitable for many educational activities, seasons and celebrations. See the other listings for paper hearts, paper flowers, paper leaves and paper sheets for making your own shapes.
Using Color Diffusing Paper
With the color diffusing paper feathers ready to go, assemble your paints, inks, watercolors or markers. You’ll need pipettes, eye droppers, or brushes to apply the liquid colors. Also, you’ll need a small spray bottle of clear water if you are using washable markers.
Lay the feather shapes on a tray or surface covered in newspaper, plastic or a drop cloth. The paper will absorb a fair amount of liquid, but some may seep through underneath so protect your surfaces.
