Today, I am looking more closely at how to stop wasting paint by using two brushes when watercolouring. My card followed Anthony Roebuck’s tutorial from his blog Watercolor Affair – a great place to indulge in all things watercolour. Also, today’s post is part of a blog hop to celebrate the new Make Magic release from Simon Says Stamp. You’ll find all the blog hop details towards the end of this post if you scroll down. I’ve linked all supplies with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.
STOP WASTING PAINT! TWO BRUSH TECHNIQUE.
TWO BRUSH TECHNIQUE
Using two brushes when watercolouring saves on wasting paint. One brush is kept loaded with paint and one with water. Using one brush to paint with means you are continuously washing your brush out in your water jar in order to blend and spread the colour around. However, if one brush is reserved just for paint and one for water you save washing that valuable paint away in your water jar!
As mentioned above, this post is part of a blog hop to celebrate the Simon Says Stamp Make Magic release. Hopefully, you’ve arrived here from Laura’s blog but if not then Simon’s blog is the best place to start. As with all good hops, there are offers and giveaways!
