You will only need a few things to try this project for yourself.
1. A set of watercolor paints
2. A brush
4. A cup of water
I bought an inexpensive set of watercolor paints from Michael's.
This set is perfect for this project, because it comes with several shades of each color. I decided to go with purple, because I like the shades of purple that are included in this set. It came with a brush which I tried, but I like a brush that I already had on hand better. I practiced on a few pieces of paper until I found what worked for me. I started with the lightest shade and worked in a circular motion. I worked my way to the darkest shade. It doesn't get much easier than that. What do you think?
I really like the way they turned out. I might even try some bigger prints in the future. Have you tried any DIY art lately? What have you come up with? Check out this post at The Little Green Notebook about watercolor wall coverings.
