Still Playing with Paint.

No brushes this time though. I decided to do a little over-dyeing (but with paint of course). Pulled some pieces from my pile of black and whites. Mixed up several different colours and made sure the paint was evenly distributed through each piece, (used that technical technique of sopping up the paint and squishing it a few times) the pieces were left to dry and then heat set. These are for a small project I want to start soon.
