Good morning, Yesterday I got some watercolour paper so that I could try this technique I have been meaning to try for AGES!! Using Copics to achieve a watercolour effect! Here are a couple of my attempts below... these are like Take 4/ Take 5... the others went straight to the bin... I still need to practise this but I think I like it!!
I also thought I would distress away the first card after seeing Kristy's Toot on Club Anya and Friends yesterday! Besides..the waterolour effect reminds me of Kristy so perfect to combine them right?? lol
I've experimented a couple of ways.. only common bit is that I have an aquapainter brush that is filled with NOT WATER but colourless blender... and then I use the copic either sparingly* directly onto the paper and use brush over top OR onto an acrylic block then pick it up with the brush and paint it onto the piccy!
What I love about Copics is their vibrancy although at times I love softer pics.. so this is the perfect solution! Thanks for popping by! I am hoping to catch up on my blog commenting today!!
The image I've used is Miss Anya Lounge from The Greeting Farm!!
* NB. If you colour directly onto watercolour paper it will really suck the ink out of your copics!!
