Tissue Transfer Art

tissue-artCreate Tissue Transfer Art at Theresa Public Library
the week of October 10 – 14. This is for all ages.
Young children should be accompanied by an adult.
There is a sign up sheet to receive a canvas for your art.
It’s a really simple process and you end up with a final product that looks like a beautiful piece of art!
Wet the canvas with spray, cut tissue paper into desired shapes, place on canvas, respray, wait 20 minutes then remove tissue paper.
Tissue colors will bleed onto the canvas, creating a pretty watercolor effect.
