How can Glaze create soft layers of color? By using it with Stamper's Big Brush Pens and Art Grip Aquarelles! Carolyn Dube here sharing how Glaze can play with these pens and pencils while coloring a few flowers.
Start by loosely tracing over some of the lines in a design with an Art Grip Aquarelle. You can use a page from a coloring book, clip art, a stamped image, or something you've drawn.
Usually, you use water with a watercolor pencil, but not here. Dip a paint brush into Glaze and then brush it over the pencil. Be sure to put the brush in water as soon as you are finished so the Glaze doesn't dry on the brush.
To add another layer of translucent color, use a Stampers Big Brush and color on a piece of transparency plastic or other non absorbent surface. Then dip your paint brush in the Glaze and mix with the color on the transparency and color in more of the flower.
You can change the intensity of the color by altering how much Glaze or color you use. I primarily used the Big Brush Pens because the bigger tip goes faster than a smaller tip, but you can also use a standard size brush tip Pitt Pen.
Thanks for joining me for today's play!
