This is a great technique. It is always a surprise how it will turn out. I have sprinkled rock salt on the wet paint and get a similar effect. Thanks for the time you take to get us all rocking with paint!
I love doing this technique with children. Once they have mellowed out… 😉 , I could punch out flowers from my Big Shot, for them to do another simple “chill out” activity, making a card. Thanks, my Maine friend!
Lindsey….I tried this with my Tombow markers without luck. So, I guess those are not the right ones? Or maybe my watercolor paper wasn’t the right kind? Any ideas? The water didn’t really do much except on the area with the blue marker.
I do this a lot, Lindsay! I’ve not done it with a brush (that’s really cool) but I flick water onto it with my fingers. It’s lovely to hold it up and let it run, too! I’ve done it with my Dylusions spray inks and also with blended distress inks. Have you tried spritzing the whole thing with water, and then scattering coarse sea salt on, and letting it dry? That’s an awesome effect – I think I’m an addict!
