Hello friends! I have a new video tutorial today- Watercoloring by dropping colors. You can create the softest colors and blending with this technique and the results are awesome! I hope you watch it and give it a try!

I love exploring and trying out new watercolor techniques and today I am Watercoloring by dropping in color. In this video I will show you two lettering projects using different products that give completely different results. I’ll also share a simpler flower project at the end of the video- this one is much easier and creates the softest looking watercolor flowers and leaves.

So today I have three examples to share- all of different yet use the same technique. For this first example, I used mixed media paper and the Sakura Koi Watercolors along with a waterbrush. I lettered the word with water first and then dropped in the color. You MUST watch the video to see this one in action. So much fun! What do you think of this result? Do you love it or think its just ok?happy watercoloring wet on wet

watercolor lettering with a Tombow dual brush pen

To do watercolor lettering, there are a lot of products out there- but I love using my Tombow Dual Brush pens along with a Blending palette itself to create a watercolor effect. I love these Derwent waterbrushes. I also recommend the waterbrush that comes with this Koi Watercolor set. I have loved lettering with the brushes that come in this set as well. In the video I also talk about how this technique would be awesome with these Dr.Ph.Martin colors.
