Coloured Ink Ladies by Krisy Podolak

Hi its Krisy back for my second share this month.  Earlier I shared my ink ladies using only Midnight Colour Shimmer Dust.  Today I am sharing another take on this process in my art journal.

For these ladies I didn't mix the colours in advance.  I used the same process of taking a large brush but instead of applying colour to the page, I applied just water.  Once I was happy with my water, I took a small disposable pipette I purchased off ebay and puffed some Colour Shimmer Dust onto the water.  

To puff the powder, you must make sure you squeezing and holding the pipette before poking it into the powder.  Poke it into the powder then let it go to suck in the powder up the tube.  Then gently squeeze and puff the powder onto the water.  Repeat the "puffing" process with more colours.  Keep the paper still and allow the colours to mix themselves.  The further away you hold the pipette when yo puff the lighter the dusting will be over the paper.

Once you are happy with your colours, allow to dry naturally.  This will allow some of the pigments to create a spotted affect. Once dry dust off any access powder that missed the water and use a maker pen to draw in your characters. 

 I like to think of these colourful ladies as a series of rich housewives at the races. It's fun to see the characters you can create.  This would be a great process for someone who likes to write and journal - you could make up some wonderful stories about these characters.  

There is no process video for this blog post but if you check out my previous card tutorials on YouTube you will see the "puffing" process if it is not clear by my written instructions here.  

Til next time...Go make so stuff.
