Coloring MC

Post by spectrum »

Obviously this doesn't matter for already colored tissue paper, but let's say I wanted to utilize a bunch of tracing paper or white tissue paper by dying the mc a desired color before applying it.

Has anybody tried this? I'm a long time folder, but I've just started dabbling into the processes of back-coating paper.

Tadashimori has a tutorial on YouTube for exactly this, he just put some acrylic paint in the mc before sizing.

Yep, Logan has it right. you may also be able to add some ink depending on the color(s) you want
I would rather fail trying than fail without trying....

I don't want to bump, but my bleeding tissue colors the brush and when I dip it in MC color comes there a way to reverse that?
