I print a lot onto tissue and then gel medium that onto journal pages and paintings. Tearing the tissue so you don’t get straight edges can be difficult – sometimes the tissue tears along a line you don’t want it to. The easiest way to do it it to use a paintbrush and water. Simply paint a line of water where you want the tear to be. Easy – and the rough edge is easily blended into the page you are working on. Voila!
