Episode 52

Bonjour les amis!

How are you all doing? With school in sight, let’s focus on enjoying the rest of summer.

Our project today is DIY paint markers.

You will need:

  • Empty and clean waterbrush
  • Liquitex Flow-Aid (it will last you a long time!)
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Water
  • Eyedropper or syringe
  • A container with a tight lid
  • Wipes
  • Scratch paper (to test the ink)
  • Gloves (optional)
  • Patience

Step 1. Gather Materials

I’m using a rather worn Niji water brush and Liquitex Soft Body Acrylic paint in Blue, Black, and Titanium White.

Step 2. Squeeze about 1 teaspoon worth of paint into your lid-able container.

Step 3. Mix the paint up with a toothpick or chopstick.

Step 4. Pour about 3-5 drops of Liquitex Flow-Aid. It helps to dilute the acrylic paint without having the paint separate. Add about 1 tablespoon + of water until the solution is rather runny.

Step 5. Pour into your waterbrush.

It takes trial and error to make a solution that will work with a water brush. I would lean more on the watery side.

Live creatively!
