Dry and Wet Watercolor Gradient Technique

Hello there!  It’s Marta Turska – Grochocka here, and I would like to show you how to make some cards using a dry and wet watercolor technique. You can use Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists as a watercolor paint! And it’s quite easy!

On the turquoise card, I’ve used a wet watercolor technique.

You will need a sheet of watercolor (aquarelle) paper and spray it with water – then spray it with a color spray (I’ve used Merci Beaucoup Mint spray) once or twice adding more and more color – I’ll show you how in the video. It’s easy!

On the pink card, I’ve used paper colored with the dry watercolor technique – you simply paint one color of spray onto the dry sheet of paper.

I’ve used Pink Ladies Pink spray.

You can use a brush or your fingers and you paint with mist & water and you add more and more color stains.

You can notice the difference – wet watercolor gives smooth ombre effect and dry watercolor creates colorful stains – lighter and darker tones.

I’ve prepared a film for you, where you can see both techniques step by step.
