Here's how to create a Tie Dye Banner with Dual Brush Pens:

.

STEP ONE

To begin the how to Tie Dye Paper with Markers tutorial, scribble Dual Brush Pens 535 and 856 on the Blending Palette in a swirl and squiggle pattern that resembles an exploding firework.

Apply red and blue dual brush pens to the blending palette Creatively Beth #creativelybeth #tiedye #tombowdualbrushpens #splashtechnique #patriotic #crafts

Spray lightly with water using the Tombow Mister. This step might take some practice because too little water will leave a strange pattern, and too much water will wash out the colors.

Mist the blending palette with water from the Tombow Mister Creatively Beth #creativelybeth #tiedye #tombowdualbrushpens #splashtechnique #patriotic #crafts

Place glossy inkjet photo paper shiny side down in the dual brush pen ink. Press and shift the paper slightly with the palm of your hand.

Carefully lift photo paper up from the corner to reveal the MAGIC of the splash technique!  The water-based dual brush pen ink dries instantly in the emulsion side of the glossy photo paper and creates a beautiful and vivid watercolor effect. Repeat these steps twice to create three banners. Clean the Blending Palette in between prints with a baby wipe and/or paper towel.

STEP TWO

Measure and cut triangular sections from the bottom of three of the Tie-Dye for the Fourth glossy photo paper to create the banner shapes.

STEP THREE

Protect the work surface with a piece of paper, then spread an even coat of MONO Multi Liquid Glue over the chipboard letters. Sprinkle silver glitter onto the letters, set them aside to dry, and then use the piece of paper to return the extra glitter to its original container. The perfect way to use up oddly colored or mismatched chipboard letters.

STEP FOUR

Measure and cut three rectangles of blue cardstock the same size as the banner. Fringe one end with scissors and attach to banners with Xtreme Permanent Adhesive. Apply Tombow Foam Tape to the back of the glittered chipboard letters USA, and attach it to the front of each banner.

STEP FIVE

To finish the How to Tie Dye Paper with Markers for a Fourth of July Banner, measure and cut a 20″ length of red ribbon and attach the banners with Xtreme Permanent Adhesive. Embellish with small sections of different ribbons and fibers tied between the banners. A great way to use up scraps. Xtreme Adhesive is five times stronger than traditional adhesive runners and is easy to apply, just roll to apply and then swipe to the side for a clean application.
