to the Wishing Well
Today is Part Two of Helen Chilton's
super article on Brushos:
"Watercolouring with Brushos:
These fine crystals are basically a watercolour.
Sprinkle into your palette or on your craft mat
and spritz to activate
Then just paint.
You can mix the colours and do any
watercolour techniques you want.
Sprinkle powder onto your craft mat
(couldn't find mine so used some plastic instead!)
Then dip in your card to pick up the colour.
Stencilling with Brushos:
Lay stencil over card and sprinkle over your Brushos.
Hey Presto! There you have it!
Don't waste the colour on the stencil,
flip it over and press down onto card.
You get a reverse image of the stencil
Here you can compare the two.
Stamping with Brushos:
Ink up stamp with an old VersaMark ink pad
(not your brand new one!).
Sprinkle on Brushos - I tend to work in colour blocks,
but you can also mix them up.
(You can see what I mean by an old VersaMark inkpad here
- don't know why I say 'old' - all mine look like this!
Sandy won't let me near the ones in the studio!)
Spritz about 3 times...
You can stamp several times without
adding more Brushos, just respritz every
These are just some of the techniques
you can do with Brushos - there's lots of other
exciting stuff that I can't fit in here.
Make sure you have a look at all the blog posts
when we do Brushos week!
I just love these little pots of magic!"
