Supplies you will need:


This is what I did.

  • To cold pressed watercolor paper, add a coat of gesso.
  • When dry, paint a light coat of acrylic paint (the lightest color of 3 that you have chosen for this project).
  • When dry, add the medium color but leave some of the first color showing in the middle.
  • When dry, add a wash of the darkest color but don't let it dry.
  • Spritz with water and let sit for a minute or two, then wipe or dab off. A lovely mottled effect will be the result.
  • When dry, stamp with a background stamp painted with a light coat of gesso. Be sure to wash the rubber stamp quickly and don't let the gesso dry on it.
