Watercolor effect on Acrylic Letters by KareenBH

Hello crafty friends! KareenBH here today to show you a cool thing to do with acrylic letters (or any acrylic shape) and the wonderful MAGICALS! You know that I like it when things are super easy and fast to do, this ”technique” is actually super easy!  Yeah Haha.

In just 3 easy steps you can have this beautiful page:


First step: Apply Gesso all over ONE side of your shape. Do that for all the shapes that you want to create a watercolor effect on.


Second step: With water and the Magicals colors you like, create a nice watercolor effect by playing with shades*.

*Add more water to have a lighter color or use less water to have a darker hue. 


Can you have something easier than that?!

Look at the nice effect when you turn over your shapes. I really love it!


Here’s the little video showing how I make this.  You can watch it below or
on the Lindy’s Stamp Gang YouTube Channel

Lindy’s Stamp Gang products used:

  • Hibiscus Rose Flat Magical
  • Caribbean Cruise Flat Magical
  • Yellow Rose Of Texas
  • Greased Lightnin’ Green

Thank you for watching, I hope you liked it!

See you soon and don’t forget to be creative every day, ALL DAY!
