Butterfly With A Tag
On the right is a photo of the result of my first real play with my Brusho
paints. Not very artistic I know but I really wanted to see for myself
how all the different pigments show up when they hit the water, it's
fascinating. Particularly interesting is the bright orange powder that immediately becomes lime green as it comes into contact with wet paper. I allowed all of these to dry naturally but then realised they weren't going to make very good backgrounds and also there were a few areas where I had dropped a touch too much of the powder and I decided to experiment to see if the colours would still blend if water was added after they had dried. I sprayed each piece fairly liberally with water and I am happy to say that the paint was reactivated and I allowed the colours to run which resulted in slightly more muted colour washed effect but where the multi colour pigments had split originally they still showed up. I forgot to take pictures of this stage so I hope you can get the gist. You can see the piece I used for the butterfly on the left of this picture, the colours in this are Prussian Blue and Lime Green.
Thank you for taking time to visit here, I hope I haven't bored you all. Thanks too for your comments I really appreciate them.
