Totally Techniques – Watercoloring

Welcome to the Totally Techniques Blog Hop! I’m Lynsay Mahon, from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Each month our team features a technique and showcases our projects using that technique.

August’s technique is one of my favourites: watercoloring! I love to watercolour and it was a great excuse to bring out my Watercolor Pencils and my Water Painters.

The best ink for watercoloring is StazOn so that the ink doesn’t run on the image. I wanted a nice, crisp, black image, so used my Jet Black StazOn to stamp these candy apples:

I used the watercolor pencils to fill in the colour and then used my Water Painter to blend the colour to get the watercolor effect.

Once the watercoloring had dried, I used the Shimmery Crystal Effects to give the apple dip some texture. I can almost taste the candy, caramel and chocolate dip on these apples!

The white dots are added from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Acrylic Shapes.
