Well, I currently have a builder knocking holes in an external wall so I’m at a bit of a loose end. There is no point trying to do much housework as the upstairs is now in a dust cloud and the noise is deafening so I can’t concentrate on crafting. What else can I do? The answer is to show you the results of Wednesday afternoon sitting at my craft desk with my new Brushos.
None of these are particular works of art but just a chance for me to have fun trying out new techniques. I worked hard at trying not to manipulate the paint too much and to allow the varying colour in each powder to show through. I experimented with adding water first with either a paintbrush or spray bottle and then adding the pigment and then a sprinkling the powder before adding water. I also used a wet brush to ‘move’ the colours in just the areas where I felt it needed it.
My photos have bleached the colours out a little – these little pots of powder are very pigmented. I can still see the drop of Ultramarine that I spilt on my cream carpet. Oops.
Thank for having a read.
