C.I. Smoosh Tutorial

Good morning, Beth Norman here with a tutorial for you. I love seeing what can be done with C.I. paints, don't you? With a little water and watercolor paper, you will create a beautiful background that can be used in so many ways.


C.I. Paints
Watercolor Paper
Non-Stick Craft Sheet

Drop C.I. paints onto a non-stick craft sheet. Place colors a little apart so they don't get muddy in the next step. Use as many colors as you like.

Using water, saturate the C.I. paint.

Smoosh watercolor paper directly into C.I. damped paint and twist and turn your paper to create a smooshing effect.

Close up.
