Color Mixing Tips for Tie Dye Coffee Filters:
- We found that the tie-dye effect looks best when brown and black are not used.
- Light colors usually show up best when they are used in the center or on the edge.
- The way you color is up to you, but large areas of color seems to transfer and blend best.
- On our turkey we used earth tone (red, green, orange) colors.
- For our peacock, we used cooler tones (blue, purple, yellow, green).
How To Dye Coffee Filters:
- Use Crayola Markers. Bright colors are best. Patterns look great (see above). Best markers: Classic Colors or Extreme Colors
- You only need to color half of the filter to get awesome results.
- After coloring, fold the filter in half and half again until it’s a wedge shape.
- Making more than one? Wear gloves or the marker ink will stain your hands.
- Don’t use too much water or the colors will be diluted.
