watercolor crayon demonstration
Caryn Crimmel suggested this approach and since we were shooting some shots for these pages, Debbie and I decided to give it a whirl.
For this we used, a lighter weight paper. You will need watercolor crayons, paper (of course) and walnut ink crystals.
See the photos below, for step-by-step instructions.
For this technique, the paper was wettened and watercolor crayons in a couple of colors were applied to the damp paper.
Next, the undiluted walnut crystals were sprinkled (somewhat sparingly) on the still damp paper.
More of the same.
Here you can see that the water from the paper has started to dissolve some of the crystals. If your paper has dried too fast or if you would like more movement of the ink, you can apply water with a spray.
This is the resulting paper. Some of the water color crayon has also dissolved and there is some movement of the ink crystals on top.
