Drip Drip Splatter Splash uses our Color Diffusing Paper!

Create awesome effects on Color Diffusing Paper! The Drip, Drip, Splatter, Splash blog posted their butterfly artwork which used Color Diffusing Paper, permanent marker and watercolor paints.

The post was published on April 17, 2013 and is entitled, “Butterfly Art.” Click here to visit the page!

Using permanent marker helps to create definite lines that students can use as guidelines for painting. We suggest to first have your design sketched out onto scrap paper. Once you are satisfied with the look, place a sheet of Color Diffusing Paper on top. Trace the outlines with black marker onto the Color Diffusing Paper.

Watercolor paints work best with the Diffusing Paper as it gets absorbed into and throughout the paper. This neat effect is due to the process of diffusion. Diffusion happens when the particles in watercolors meet a material like diffusing paper that has little to no water content. As a result, it is always trying to fill in that area with watercolor particles.

The first part of the post shows a beautiful picture of the various butterfly renditions made with Color Diffusing Paper. Scroll further down the post to see other variations made with different materials!

Thanks to Shelly P for sharing her work!

  1. Cool! Thanks for sharing my post on butterfly art with diffusion paper!! Diffusion paper is one of my favorite materials and easy to use. When I moved to my new current school, that was one of the few materials the other art teacher did not have, that was a must for me. I haven’t used it yet this year, but may need to come up with something before the year is up!!
