I used a coffee filter, twisted it and rubber banded it just like you would a t-shirt. There are many instructions on the web but HERE is one example. I then used an Aquapainter with three colors of reinkers, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo. I saturated the coffee filter with the ink in three sections making sure the section overlap to create the secondary colors. I showed this to my 13 year old daughter this week and it looks like we will be buying some dies and a t-shirt this weekend:-)
