supplies you will need to get started...|
artist tape and a drawing board
or any firm surface to tape the watercolor paper to.
|Spectra Art Tissue paper. |
Gift wrapping tissue paper will not work.
I found this package at the local Art/Craft store.
a piece of watercolor paper to your board. |
Have a container of clean water at the ready and some large brushes.
Soak the whole piece of paper with water.
|Cut or tear pieces of tissue paper, |
place them in a container (I used a box lid)
The colors and sizes of paper are your choice.
I would suggest cutting and tearing your tissue
paper before you soak your watercolor paper.
the tissue paper onto the wet watercolor paper. |
Using a brush loaded with water brush over the pieces till they stick to the paper,
it's ok if the colors start to bleed .
|Keep adding tissue paper till you |
have the desired amount.
the watercolor paper and the tissue paper are dry peel off the tissue
Do not worry if your paper is still a bit wavy...
simply lay it on a hard surface and stack something
heavy on top for a few hours. I use a stack of books.
|These were done on watercolor paper, you can see how much brighter |
the colors are than the Bristol Paper.
