The best thing about watercolour paints and the reason why they are such a gateway product into the world of art supplies is how easy they are to use. As with any medium, the more practice you have using them, the better your technique will become, however almost anyone of any age can use watercolours easily.
How To Use Watercolour Paints
Using watercolours is as simple or complex as you want it to be. Use a wet paintbrush on the surface of the colour you need to mix up and pick up some of the colour. Either use as-is for vibrant hues or mix with another on a mixing tray to create the exact colour you need before applying to your paper. The more water you add to the colour, the paler it will be! Getting the perfect shade is a learning process so it might be wise to have a piece of scrap paper handy to test them as you go.
One of the best things about watercolours is their ability to be rehydrated and manipulated even after you’ve put them on the paper and they’ve dried. Just wash over them with a wet paintbrush, again and again, to blend and dilute the paint after it has dried. They’re also great for painting beautiful sunsets or skies. Best paired with a high-quality watercolour paper to prevent warping, give your page a gentle wash of water before dipping your brush into the colours and dabbing them on the page, swirling and swishing to create incredible skyscapes. Not quite right? No problem! Just dilute with more water, or paint over it with another to blend it out and get the exact effect you need!
These easy-to-use paints are the perfect way to teach children all about colour theory. Watercolours can be mixed to their heart’s content, creating new colours, amazing pieces of art and pretty paintings in no time at all. The formula is non-toxic and, because it's water-soluble, can be easily cleaned off of clothes and work surfaces - perfect for children to use and play with without you worrying about paint going everywhere.
