So I'm caught in a vortex of Color Burst pigment powders vs Brusho. And I don't even like to water color. It's crazy, I know.
I've played with tapping the powder onto both wet and dry surfaces, and various levels of spritzing, but I'm still not feeling the love.
Then a few of my bloggy peeps used the Color Burst to paint. Well duh, it's powdered paint. So I tried it. This is what came out:
I used the yellow, orange and red Color Burst pigment powders. I tapped some powder onto my craft sheet and added water to it, then used a brush to paint the colors onto some water color paper. It works the same as any other water color. Surprise! There is some red up in the yellow because I failed to rinse my brush well enough. There are also some random color splotches here and there; no idea how that happened, but I kinda like it. Oh, wait, I meant to do that. Right, I probably couldn't do it on purpose, though.
To make this background more interesting, after it dried I added some translucent embossing paste through a Hero Arts stencil and set it aside to dry. I only touched it five or six times before it dried. Sigh.
Here you can sorta see the shiny:
and the mystery color splotches...
Well, I'm glad I got that out of my system. If I'm going to water color, I'll use one of my six other options in my craft room. I don't need to collect any more stuff. Not that this isn't the right product for YOU. I'm just not a water colorer, and I don't need one more product to collect. I'm sure I'll find something else I NEED instead. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
