Yesterday morning I was making some baby food for Henry with a nectarine, yellow squash, blueberries, a red apple and a red pepper (I throw them all (chopped up) into boiling water for a short while, then puree them). When I took them out of the water the most beautiful color was left behind. I couldn’t just toss it in the sink so I grabbed some drawing paper and dipped it, soaked it and then laid it out to dry. I tried it with watercolor paper too but it would not absorb the color so I wound up putting the water color paper on top of the soaked drawing paper and it left a cool hazy shape. It kind of looks tie dyed. I love this. I should do it next time I make food and then use the paper as backgrounds for drawings.

Try this at home!!!
