Tissue Paper and Starch Tiles

Under simple crafts for kids, it doesn’t get much easier than this. It’s just tissue paper and starch over these plastic tiles.

Use good old liquid starch as it dries much faster and keeps things much less sticky. I found my starch at Smart & Final, which is a restaurant supply store in CA. I love how the ordinary tissue colors bleed together in a really sophisticated looking way.

• Rubbing Plates
• Bleeding Tissue paper
• White glue / water
• Brush

PREP: Cut lots of tissue paper into approximately 1″ squares. I like to keep assortments either warm or cool colors so that the bleeding colors stay bright.
1. Students get a mixture of 50/50 white glue and water, and brush in onto the tile.
2. Tissue squares are placed on the tile and more glue / water is brushed on top until everything is saturated. Let dry overnight.
3. Remove the tissue from the tile.
