Watercolor bookmarks step by step:
Step by step photo + video tutorial to make easy Watercolor Bookmarks
Total Time: 10 minutes
Trim your watercolor paper into bookmarks
Using a paper trimmer or a pair of scissors, cut bookmarks to measure 2 by 7 inches in size. Using a heavy (140lb) watercolor paper here so that the paper won’t easily warp with the paint and water.
Draw your hidden message
Using a white crayon or a candle draw/write your pattern or words onto the bookmark
Paint with watercolors
Next, apply watercolors on top.
Let dry and enjoy!
We made our Watercolor bookmarks colorful and pieces of rainbow art, but this will work even if you use just one color of watercolor paint!
How this works:
The crayon or candle is wax-based and sits on the paper first and acts as a resist. As you paint with the watercolors, the white design you drew with the crayon will show
TIP: This works better with darker colored watercolors!
