Mixing it Up with Powdered Pigment!

I love playing with dried paint pigment and my favorites are Bisters, Brushos and Color Burst; although, there are other brands available. This techniques uses a stencil to create a very unique image.

Supplies

Directions

  • Tape down stencil to watercolor paper. You don’t want the water to seep under the stencil, so make sure the stencil is flat.
  • Sprinkle Brusho’s (or other dried paint pigment) over the stencil.
  • Spritz the open areas of stencil with water. Blot with paper towel if too wet. I use the actual paper towel roll to roll over stencil to blot. (Save the paper towels. I will show you how to use them in backgrounds in another post).
  • Repeat until desired color is achieved.
  • Blot stencil with paper towel and remove it.
  • Cut image and mount on card base.

Tip – As you can see the stencil is quite large and bigger than a card size. Cut the rest of the stencil up to make great card or ATC backgrounds.

Storage Tip – I have many stencils and I have found a wonderful storage solution, I use a 14″ x 11″ Art Profolio by Itoya available at Dick Blick – www.dickblick.com.
