So this is it for the watercoloured backgrounds for
now.I still have a couple left, but I’ve
put them aside to focus on the new challenges.I’ll probably incorporate them with a challenge tangle at some point.
Here’s what I’ve learned from doing the watercolour
#1 – Don’t use cheap watercolour pencils.They wind up looking more like crayon marks when
#2- Microns tend to
bleed a bit on the watercoloured tiles.
#3 – Don’t lightly use a black watercolour pencil for the background –
it winds up just looking like the tile got dirty (see example on my peace sign
#4 – I’ve mentioned it before, and thanks to Eni we in the
shading fb group were given a heads-up on these 2 points: Let your watercolour
dry completely (24 hours) before zentangling it and put the drying pieces
between waxed paper and some heavy books to flatten it out. If you know of a
better way to make stop the tiles from curving and curling with the
watercolour, please let me know! Even with the books and waxed paper mine still
curve and curled a bit.
