Hello everyone!! It's Channin here and today I have a fun watercoloring technique to share with you all, wet on wet watercoloring!! Wet on wet watercoloring is a fun and loose way to watercolor. This technique allows for a lot of movement of your colors and yields beautiful varied results. And it’s so fun to watch, it looks and feels like the paint is painting itself!
[TT Video] Wet on Wet Watercoloring by Channin
Watch below or on our YouTube channel. First, I stamped and white embossed many little bags from the Little Gifts Stamp Set on a 5x7 panel of watercolor paper. Next, smooshed a rainbow of Waffle Flower dye inks (Happy Go Lucky, Oh Happy Day, My Pleasure, Daydreaming, and Chirp Chirp) on a big piece of packaging plastic, you could simply use a sheet of acetate or a laminated sheet of white cardstock instead. I then misted my smooshed inks water. Next, with water from a cup dedicated to clean clear water, I painted a couple bags. I then picked up some watered down ink with my brush and transferred it to the bags I previously painted with water. I would often simply allow the ink to move on the surface of the water by itself but sometimes I would tilt my paper to get a little more movement. I continued this process till all my bags were painted. After my bags had dried I painted my background by smooshing Like a Pro dye ink on my palette, watering it down, and then painting around the bags. I then let the background dry and once it was dry I painted shadows around all the bags with some more watered down Like a Pro. I then stamped and white embossed a sentiment from the Balloon Messages Stamp Set on a strip of grey cardstock. Lastly, I adhered my panel onto my cardbase and then adhered my sentiment with some foam tape. I hope you enjoyed!
