Dying papers with indian spices

Try dyeing your sketchbook papers with Indian Spices.

Mix the spices witha little water and rub onto your papers, leave to dry and tip off excess spices

NOTE : - Wear gloves when dying the papers especially when you use chillis as they can stay on your fingers even after washing your hands. Make sure that you do not touch your eyes.
