About This Class


This class is a short introduction to the tools and techniques you can use to add watercolour splatters to your work. Splatters and sprays are great for adding fun, expression and movement to your work, and can also be used for more specific purposes such as stars in a night sky or falling snow. I take you through different techniques and then show you two fun and easy projects that you can do yourself to make finished pieces!

The supplies I use in this class include:

  • Cold pressed watercolour paper
  • Winsor & Newton watercolour paints & mixing palette
  • A variety of round brushes (from size 0 to size 8)
  • Water
  • Paper towels
  • A toothbrush
  • A speckling brush
  • A straw
  • Dr PH Martins Bleed Proof White paint
  • Washi tape

This class is the first in a new series of short classes so if there are any topics you would like me to cover in future classes in this style, please do let me know! I always love to hear your feedback!
