Hello Bee Arty Fans,

WHY to try this technique?

Gessoing the paper first is the key to this technique. It means your have time to play with and move the colour around the page before it soaks in and sets. You can layer extra colour, or extra water to get lighter and darker elements. You can experiment with adding complimentary colours. Moving and drying the colours lets you see all the complex colours and shimmer in the shimmer dusts. You will have such fun exploring and experimenting!


Thanks for looking today!

Amanda
