Toilet paper makes art

What's all this then, you may be asking.

Well, yesterday I bought some cheap kids' markers, just to have fun with.

As I was contemplating what kind of fun I'd have with them, I remembered something I used to love to do as a kid.

You simply draw with the markers on coffee filters and then stick a bit of them into a glass of water and then MAGIC happens!

As the water soaks into the filter, it draws the ink from the marker with it and creates these beautiful splashes of colour.

It's always interesting what colours make up the different ones. I think especially the browns and the greys hold many more colours than one would think.

I had no coffee filters, but toilet papers works just as fine.

Not sure if I can find a use for these, other than their prettiness... who knows...

Happy days.
