All the details…..

This process is very easy and can be completed quickly. The first thing to do is mix your desired color of paint with water in your pie plate. I’ll simply squirt some paint into the dish and add enough water to submerge the filters. Be sure to stir your paint and mix it well with the water before adding the filters.

Once you have submerged your filters, remove them and fold them in order to squeeze out the excess liquid.

Finally, you will lay each filter out to dry. I’ll lay down a piece of wax paper and then layer two paper towels on top of that. Pull the filters apart and lay 5 on top of the paper towels. Cover the filters with an additional layer of paper towels and press down to absorb more liquid. Repeat this process for all of the coffee filters.
