Origami Paper Overdye!

Today I cleared off my lovely big kitchen kitchen counter and had at overdying some of my Cost Plus paper from India.  The paper is soft and almost fabric-like, and is a lovely light turquoisy-teal color with gold accents.  It takes cobalt blue and purple watercolor overdying really well.

Wetting the paper allows the colors to run and blend together very prettily.

Once it's dry a couple of hours later, the colors soften a bit.
Now it's ready to cut!

Meanwhile outside, the clouds were doing their weird pancake thing again, this time with cool artsy whispy bottoms, though.
I thought it looked very much like a jellyfish.
