Hi Blitsy Fans!
I have an awesome project for you today. I was so excited to get these Dr. Ph. Martin's Radiant Water Colors and after I experimented with them for a bit (lots of trial and error when exploring a new-to-me medium - let me tell you), I came up with an idea to create a gorgeous watercolor background on a Walnut Grove Basswood Plank and then do an image transfer over top. I have done image transfers over acrylic paints but never watercolors because of the amount of water needed to remove the paper. As I played with the watercolors, I noticed they dried quickly and didn't move easily or at all once dry and I tried to put more water over them. That is what gave me the idea to try to do the image transfer. I'm not saying they are permanent because I wasn't able to confirm that and I want to play with them a bit more - also as I removed the paper pulp to reveal the image transfer, I did notice some of the color on the paper. However, it did work beautifully and I'm really happy with the finished result. Let me show you how and maybe you will be inspired to try this technique as well!
