Take the familiar Japanese term “origami” that represents the tradition of paper folding, then insert the word for dyeing, “zome”, and you get “orizomegami”, the colorful art of dyeing folded paper. The folds are easy and patterns come from dipping paper in non-toxic watercolors. The techniques are similar to those used on fabric (itajime), but orizomegame uses finger pressure rather than clamps to control the patterns. We’ll dye tissue paper, useable for gift wrapping, and heavier rice paper suitable for cards and other creative uses.
