Paint yourself a quick watercolor background in minutes using one of my favorite colorants: Watercolor (or Water soluble) Crayons by Lyra. If you’re not familiar with watercolor crayons, you have been missing out! Watercolor crayons are highly pigmented crayons which dissolve and blend easily when brushed with water. Follow the steps below and you’ll be creating beautiful blended backgrounds in minutes!
step 1. color on watercolor paper with crayons; layer colors as desired.
step 2. dip paintbrush in water; brush over colors and blend
step 3. add more water to dissolve crayon lines; blend until desired look is achieved.
I really like this colorant because of it’s flexibility; the amount of wash is determined by the amount of water applied to the color. Look for watercolor crayons at art stores or online for better pricing.
