Each student got a paper towel and they used watercolor to paint it. The watercolor spread on the paper towel and created the Tie Dye look. Then the students used the directions below to draw a self portrait with a pencil and traced over it with a permanent marker. Then they shadow cut their portraits and glued them onto the paper towel. Regular glue seeped through, so I would use a glue stick.
Here is the book it came from.
