You'll need a
napkin, a tiny paint brush, and water.
The first time I tore the napkin, I separated the layers because I thought they would just fall apart. But that made the napkin too fragile. The next time I tore the napkin, I peeled away one layer and left two. That worked out much better.
1. Take your little paint brush and dip it in the water
2. Tap off excess moisture so it's just a little wet.
3. Paint with the water around the edge of the picture on the napkin.
4. Paint just a little way, and then, while the napkin is still wet, carefully pull away the edge of the napkin. This leaves you with a nice, feathery edge, and you have more control over the tear than you do when the napkin is dry.
