Updated: Apr 4, 2021
Hey guys, it's Megan!
I recently posted a video showing you a few projects you can try when you're bored this summer. If you missed it, you can check it out here!
One of the projects in the video was to paint tie dye. This is the perfect painting for summer, and it's super easy too!

For this project you'll need:
Canvas, Sketchbook, or any other surface to paint on
Start by drawing a spiral on your paper:
Then, use a flat paintbrush to make small strokes along the edge of the pencil line.
This works best with a fan brush, but I didn’t have one so I just used a flat paintbrush.
I used four different colors- red, yellow, green and blue.
Whenever I have paint leftover from a project, I like to use it to make backgrounds in my sketchbook. This is a quick and easy project to help you use up some of that extra paint.
This page took me about 20 minutes in total. I’ll probably either leave it plain or paste another drawing on top.
