Welcome to another supply-friendly class. I’m excited to show you how to do some watercolour techniques. I don’t watercolour a lot so I’m going to show you plenty of ways to “fake it ’til you make it” so you can get some beautiful watercolour looks without practicing a lot. This class I believe is truly a class that has a variety of technique levels so choose the ones you want to try and let’s have some fun!

Don’t have watercolours? You can simply use your inks! Try smooshing some ink onto an acrylic block, spritz some water and give these techniques a try. No big deal! There are many watercolour options out there besides using your inks – actual watercolours, watercolour brush markers, you can even use Crayola watercolours. Below are a few recommendations for watercolours and alternatives – all of which I have tried and tested. If you want something easy to colour images with, try the Watercolour Markers from Altenew. All the colour is in a comfortable brush marker that allows you to control the amount of colour by pushing on the barrel to release more pigment. Altenew also makes some nice, creamy watercolours that come with a waterbrush for easy colouring.
