Last month, I told you that the NEW Shimmer powders are awesome. So, today I am sharing another creation using these little pots of gold. I saw YouTube tutorial some time ago about taking ink splotches and making them into people you can watch it here. So I thought I would give it ago.
To start you use a large brush the more scratchy and used the better to create some texture. I didn’t have one so I just used a large round brush. I mixed up some black powder with water to create some liquid water colour and then randomly brushed some strokes onto the page. I kept it to one colour as this was a new technique to me so I wanted to keep it simple.
Once dry, take a black marker and draw in some people. How ever you see them. I then used a white marker to add some details.
They are so fun to make. It’s a simple process but it is interesting to look at things a different way. I also tried out this technique using Puffs of colour. You will have to wait until later in the month to see this though. In the meantime, you can watch a quick process video on my YouTube channel POPLEOPOD.
