Drip Dry Pictures



  • ~ White paper towels
  • ~ 4 small dishes
  • ~ Food coloring: red, blue, yellow and green
  • ~ Water
  • ~ Paper grocery bags


  • Fill each dish about half full with water.
  • Add several drops of food color to each dish.
  • Fold a paper towel into several layers.
  • Dampen the towel in the sink. Then squeeze out most of the water.
  • Smooth out the towel, keeping it folded.
  • Dip one corner into one of the dishes of colored water. Watch the color soak into the paper. The longer you soak, the more vibrant the color will be.
  • Repeat with the other three corners/colors.
  • Gently unfold the paper towel to reveal the design; set flat onto a paper bag to dry
