31 August 2015

I love paint!  As a mixed media artist, I am always on the hunt for awesome paints to try out and experiment with.  And, even though I absolutely love my artist quality paint palettes ( I love M. Graham's watercolour), sometimes it's fun to play around with different paints! I've collected 5 awesomely super simple watercolour recipes from around the web. Each of these 5 posts will provide you with the directions on how to make your own watercolour paints from simple ingredients that you probably already have laying around the house!
