  1. Thanks Mal.
    I used a larger piece of tissue paper (about 6×6″) and coloured all of it. I cut it down after adhering to the white base.
    The wet tissue wasn’t too hard to handle. You don’t need a lot of water. I actually dipped mine a second time after it was dry and it held together very well. xx
