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
- Eyedropper or syringe
- A container with a tight lid
- Scratch paper (to test the ink)
- Gloves (optional)
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.
