stamping and watercolours

Postby Carolyn » Mon May 14, 2012 11:31 pm

I have started some pages on watercolours.

I am no expert and would welcome any advice, I thought it was better to split them into pages, so still have 'wet paints' to do

I know the top of the page link and pinterest all need changing

Yes , they are fine. I enjoyed reading them.

Whilst you are playing with the forum, Carolyn, do you think you get links to open in another window? i keep forgetting that doesn't happen here and have to keep logging in again?

It's worth buying good paints or watercolour pencils, Sheila. I am sure you would enjoy it. I am not fond of the various felt tipped pens available. I much prefer pencils and paint! :lol:

no I don't think it is that easy with this version, sorry, you can right click your mouse and open any link in a new window.

You also can tick the 'keep logged in' button so that you don't need to actually log on again.

I've bought some Derwent pencils, just wondered what card is best to use.

tbh I just use any old card, just not too shiny, and maybe not too thin.

you can water colour with most of the pens around and lots of water based ink pads - try the brillaince ones for sparkle!!

Basically smudge some of the ink onto something smooth like an acrylic bock or plastic and then lift the colour with a damp paintbrush, pens just squigle them on block or plastic and then use - you get stronger colour. WCPencils are good I like them but find that to get the movement of the pigment i need watercolour paper really - anything else pills and warps with the water unless its a quick job.

I guess everyone has their fav, I just find water colour pencils so easy. I don't use much water, so warping isn't a problem - only occasionally.

They are lovely Carolyn. I've never really got on too well with watercolours. That's why I love my
promarkers
