Brusho Crystal Colour - Assorted Box of 12 Colours ... by ColourCraft - includes 12 beautiful powdered watercolour paints.
These are amazingly versatile watercolours that can be used in so many different ways and on almost any surface including cardstock, paper, Yupo, canvas, fabrics and wood.
The Brusho Crystal Colour (Colourcraft call them "ink crystals") is a highly pigmented watercolour powder that dissolves almost instantly in water.
Techniques and ideas ...
- Sprinkle them directly onto a wet substrate (paper, canvas or other surface) and watch how the colours interact and blend together. Its an intriguing organic process that happens almost like magic.
- Sprinkle on a wet brush, spatula, painting knife or texture tool to create a variety of effects.
- Dip the paint brush into the jar.
- Sprinkle some on your palette and add water for painting and colouring.
- Dissolve Brusho Crystal Colour with water for painting.
- Dissolve some in water to use in a spray bottle (sold separately) to create beautiful marbled blends of colour.
- Mix into gel medium, gesso, wax paste, texture paste, embossing paste,
- Stamp an image with Archival or Embossing ink and while still wet, sprinkle on some Brusho powder. Shake off the excess and pour back into the jar.
Hints and Tips ...
- Easy to open, simply pull off the seal and lift the lid slowly (maybe tap the jar in case its around the lid).
- Its a flexible lid so doesn't rattle the powder as you open and close the jar.
- Poke a hole in the lid and use a round sticker (coloured using the same paint, as a swatch) to cover the hole when not in use.
- Use a drawing pin to poke the hole and use the drawing pin as the stopper.
- Apply gesso to the top of the lid and once dry, paint on the Brusho Powder to create a swatch coloured lid.
- For fabrics, be sure to mix with a fabric medium during or after you've created your artwork if you wish it to be washable.
