I reunited with my favorite Radiant Watercolors by Dr. Ph Martin's for a Watercolor Demo for the Silver Ultra Mini Brush Series at Craft Carrot's flagship store on East Capitol Drive, Kapitolyo.
I've been using Silver Brush for watercolor for as long as I can remember. These are the brushes that I always include in my workshop kits. This 20/0 spotter brush in particular, is one of my faves. They're perfect for lettering and botanical details!
Worked on a bunch of different pads because watercolors take A LOT of time to dry in between layers.
This little watercolor + craft project has been looming in my head for some time now, and I'm glad I was able to share it at the demo. I used a Silver Brush Black Velvet mop brush, and the #14 and #6 designer round brushes, on Arches Hot Pressed Watercolor Paper.
This is my underpainting process:
The rainbow colored thing at the center is masking tape / washi for covering the address area part of the envelope. Just peeled it off when the paint was dry.
Everyone in the room squirmed a bit when I started folding and cutting up my watercolored works. Hehe :P But check out the final designs! I'm wishing for a bride out there who'll want to have these vibrant colors for their invitation suite :)
These actually also serve as color and floral studies for some new patterns and workshops that I'm developing. Bringing back the Dr. Ph Martin's pigments in my kits this July. Watch out for those!;)
