Tonight I was watching my mum colour with watercolour pencil crayons and I decided to try them too.
My closest image was Santa Marci, so I picked a nice bright red crayon and started to colour.
With Watercolour markers you first colour your image just like you would any image but these are not regular crayons or markers. The fun part about the watercolour pencils is that you get to play with the colour afterwards using a paint brush and a TINY bit of water.
After colouring each section I wet a very small brush with a little water and then dabbed the brush onto my work space to get rid of any extra drops – the brush should be damp but not wet, especially for small spaces.
As I went over the colour with the paintbrush the crayon and water mixed to create a ‘moveable” liquid. I got to smooth out any lines and create a new look to my image. When I was happy with my Marci, I added some Liquid Pearls on the furry parts of her outfit. It looks nice AND it hides any pencil/brush slip-ups!
Have a lovely weekend
