Would you dip-dye a painting? After stumbling across this mini trend at Decor8, we’re still scratching our heads. Sure, we’ve dipped bar stools, bamboo spoons, and dressers, but paintings? Something about it seems almost sacreligious. Oliver Jeffers’s dipped paintings — the trend’s clear inspiration — are spooky and haunting and yes, a totally modern piece of art we’d love to hang in our own homes. Plus, we can’t help but love the DIY take on it from bloggers like DIY Candy and Homedit. Who knows: Maybe this is a trend to try in 2015.
