5 TIPS FOR USING WATERCOLOUR PAINTS
Keep a paintbrush nearby as you work. Then, if you miss areas of an image, you can use the brush to move the ink and water around and repair the image while still wet.
To create a threedimensional look to your work, use a darker colour to add some simple shading around the edges.
Add colour in layers. Always begin with the lighter shades, and then add darker colours and shading. When layering colour, always make sure one area is completely dry before adding another shade, this will prevent the colours from bleeding into each other.
Have a stack of paper towels to hand and use them to absorb excess liquid or paint from your brush.
To stamp a watercolourstyle image, stamp the image as normal then spritz a fine mist of water onto the stamp. This will disperse the ink before it makes contact with the paper. Or you can use water reactive dyes for fabulous watercolour effects.
