Once again I am adding a linky on the bottom of the post. If you have creative ideas for children please link below. No recipes. Just artwork please.
Creative Saturdays – Blowing Watercolour
This week at my art lesson we were shown a technique for getting interesting lines in watercolour. It is a very simple method – one blows the paint around.
- Watercolour Paper
Wet the paper using a spray bottle. Don’t wet everywhere.
Mix the paint so that it is of a milky consistency – not too thin.
Drop the paint into the water puddles. You can add different colours.
Then get down really close to the painting and start to blow. Blow in all directions.
You can also use your finger tip wet with water and move the paint around a little if you would like more variety.
Wait for the paint to dry.
Then you can add your picture. Or just leave it as a lovely abstract. Sometimes you will be able to find shapes and make a picture from that.
Or you can draw a picture first; then cover it with paper towel while you drop paint and blow around it.
Have fun and experiment.
