Cool Ombré Watercoloring - Aqua Painters

Watercoloring becomes a breeze when you have the right tools! With Aqua Painters, you can watercolor without the mess and hassle of a cup or bowl of water that can spill on your projects. 
With two sizes of brushes, you’ll have what you need for a variety of techniques. 
The larger brush is used for big watercoloring techniques - like Watercolor Resist. 
The smaller brush is great for detail work and techniques like the Watercolor Highlighting. Aqua Painters are easy to use, clean, and store. They work perfectly with our Watercolor Paper, Classic Ink, Watercolor Pencils, Watercolor Wonder Crayons and more! 

I’ll be happy to demonstrate these techniques, and more, to you and your friends!
Here's another sample of the same technique with a different twist:
Tip: Use Black StazOn ink to prevent stamped images from bleeding when you add water with the Aqua Painters.
It's as easy as A, B, C:
A.  Place the Watercolor Paper on a folded paper towel to absorb excess water and ink.
Wet the entire surface of the Watercolor Paper with water using the
Aqua Painter. This allows the color to flow evenly.
B.  Squeeze closed ink pads to transfer ink from the pad to the inside of the lid.
Pick up ink from the lid with an Aqua Painter.
C.  Starting at one end, paint lightest color, Daffodil Delight, over 1/3 of Watercolor Paper.
Add Pumpkin Pie and then the darkest shade, Melon Mambo, to the center and end thirds. Blend only slightly where the colors change to keep the distinctive layered ombré effect.
Set aside to dry.
