Materials You Will Need

  • Egg Coloring Pages by Expressive Monkey

Step One – Paint Water

Paint the Easter egg coloring page with plain water using a large brush. (Make sure names are on the back first!)

Step Two – Add Tissue

Adding tissue paper to the Easter egg coloring page

Lay colored bleeding tissue squares on the wet areas inside the egg. “Bleeding tissue” means that the colors of the tissue paper will run or bleed when the tissue paper gets wet. Some tissue paper, like the tissue paper made for gift wrapping, doesn’t bleed.

More Water

When you’ve laid all the tissue paper down, go over the whole egg with MORE WATER.

You are now ready to let the tissue paper dry.

Removing the Tissue

This is the BEST part! It’s like Christmas! When the tissue paper is dry you can lift the tissue paper off. It takes at least a couple of hours for the tissue paper to dry, so don’t plan on doing this step in the same art class that you add the wet tissue paper to your egg. You’ll also want to make sure the egg is completely dry before cutting it out. The pieces of tissue paper that come off the egg will be beautiful! Save them and use them for a collage project later.

Cut Out the Egg

Bleeding Tissue Art Techique

Isn’t this a fun technique? I bet you can think of lots of ways to use this technique! Just in can you are drawing a blank (no pun intended) have students do just about any black line drawing on heavy paper (89-90# drawing paper). Then use this technique to add color.

Remind yourself and others of the social and emotional benefits of art. This is a great graphic to include in parent newsletters or display in your room.
