It happens to every paper crafter, artist, heck even kids when they’re coloring with a box of crayons. The day comes, when you simply do NOT have the color you absolutely need! What can you do? Well, setting the project aside is a possibility, as is changing your color scheme. But I have discovered that since I have Niji Splash Inks that I don’t have to do either! Today, I’m going to show you how to custom color ribbon and doilies.
- Niji Splash Inks
- Ribbon, doilies
- Paper towels and/or newspaper
Begin by mixing up the colors you want, using the color chart guide that comes with each package of Splash Inks.
Add a bit of water to each color.
Grab a strip of ribbon, I find it’s easier to handle if they are one yard in length or under, and begin dipping it into your color. Once completely colored, wring out the excess and place on a paper towel to dry. Continue with all your colors, washing your hands between different shades.
You can do doilies as well, simply dip them into the color wash like the ribbon. Do not crinkle them or attempt to squeeze off the excess liquid. Place them on towels to dry.
Once everything has completely dried, you now have your custom colored items ready to go for that special project!
I’ve showed you how to custom color ribbon and doilies here, but you can use practically anything. Fabric strips, paper tags or bags, clothespins and other wooden baubles… Really, the sky is the limit. Practice with your Splash Inks, and you’re life will be FULL of color!
