Could I ask why you would want to color it like that?

Even if you were successful, remember you have to continually touch it up as the feathers grow out. This might be more work than you are willing to do.

It would be a good camouflage. But when she is out of the paper she will never look normal to the crowd.

Why not take a sheer white hairnet and use rubber stamps on it to look like newsprint. Cover the dove with that to look "printed" and then "erase" the ink? Now you are back to a dove the audience will recognize as a live dove.

Do you logically mean the dove came from the paper?, It will not look good to the audience. If you do try something like that I advise you to leave her face alone.

I like the newspaper load bag but I am trying to visualize what the colored dove would look like. Maybe people would think that the bird was hiding in the paper all along?
