Today I am back with a video for you and I am playing with liquid watercolour. I was given a couple of Dr PH. Martin’s Radiant Concentrated Liquid watercolors by a friend for my birthday last year and I hadn’t got around to really playing with them. I have no idea why, I felt a little bit intimidated by them if I am honest. No real reason to be actually as they are just as easy to use as any other watercolor! So I have wasted a year not using them, although I did add a few more colours to my collection in the meantime! And I have a feeling I will be getting some more – the colours are stunning!
Here is a photo of the two cards. I went with sympathy cards for some reason. I don’t have any ready, they are useful to have and you always need them quickly when you least expect it.
The liquid watercolour is definitely concentrated, a little goes a long way so they are a good investment I think. I use just two in today’s video and show two different ways of applying them. The end results are pretty similar to be honest, so you can do whichever way takes your fancy.
So here, is the video for you.
I did two panels for the cards – both the same colours, but one had Arches Cold Pressed cardstock, the other Arches Hot Pressed cardstock. The hot pressed gives a much smoother finish, than the textured cold pressed, but the liquid watercolour worked well on both.
I hope that you enjoyed watching. I did really enjoy making them and will be thinking of some more projects to use them again in the future. Thank you as always for joining me today, I wish you a fabulous Tuesday. Happy crafting!
