CIY Staff Tips:

  • Tie the string to the dowel in whatever method you prefer. We used lark head knots to secure our string.
  • Mix and match watercolor tablets to create custom colors!
  • The ombre effect is most successful when working from light to dark colors.
  • Once string has dried, experiment with cutting the strings on an angle for a different effect.
