Connector Color Blending

Raise your hand if you love playing with color!


Watercolors are super fun, especially when you can mix and blend them to make new colors!


First, start with some watercolor paper. Tape off the edges and a rectangular box in the middle so you have a nice border.

Then, grab your Faber-Castell connector watercolor paints in the colors magenta, yellow, and cyan blue.

Using magenta, start painting in the border you made with the tape. Add the yellow, and gently mix them together in the middle, to make orange.

Continue doing this, alternating colors, all the way around the border of your paper.

Once that dries, remove the tape, and grab your Pitt Artist pens.
