Lightweight tie color coffee filter art for kids
Kids love it color mixing and so they like to tie the paint. Plus, there are so many things you can try. This is the first time we tie colored coffee filters and we are addicted. It's so much fun and so easy. It is a ship without stress, and we all need less stress in our lives right now. Am I right? This can be done in a variety of ways using markers, watercolors or food colors. I chose to make DIY tie colored coffee filters with washable markers. I think it is the least dirty, more time consuming and also the most magical option. I will explain. There is something delightful about watching the colors pull in on each other when you lower the water markers on the inscriptions and drawings.
What I love about tie color is (with the right color combination), it will always turn out cool. Try this post today with the kids.
Tie-Dye coffee filter art
- Kryola washable markers instead of thin markers (Sketch markers work here too)
- Coffee filters
- Pipe cleaners or flower wire
- Cardboard or oven sheet pan (to save the table)
Step 1: Draw colored lines, shiggles and drawings on the coffee filters. The more colors you use (the less white there will be (the more colorful the color of the tie). Similar rules apply to browns, so try to use colors instead of mixing well next to you. do not like, they can create another.But sometimes those who do not like us surprise us with their beauty.
Step 2: Align the table with a cardboard or oven sheet pan so that the transparent paint does not damage your table. Start dripping water on the coffee filter with a dropper and warm water. The colors will start to blend right away and it's so much fun to watch. I like to move from the inner circle to the edges, but you can blend as much as you want.
Step 3: Allow the coffee filter to dry for about 12 hours or less. Then fold it like an accordion (or kids can just fold it in the center). Press the center of it into a pinch of clothes. Play with the folds if you need it and blow the edges (aka the wings), but you should have something resembling a butterfly.
Step 4: Trim the wings with a small cut in the middle so that they look more like a butterfly's wings.
Step 5: Use floral wire, craft wire or pipe cleaners to create the antennas. Slightly open a pinch of clothes and insert the antennas at the top.
