Water brushes are so fun to use! Well, mostly because I’m just lazy and with these guys, I don’t have to keep dipping my brush in water! haha. But it’s not just that, these brushes make colour blending really easy 🙂 And this is coming from a non-paint-expert.
How it works is really simple – you unlock the tip of the brush and fill the hollow compartment with water, lock it back then proceed to dip your brush into paint. When you decide you’re bored of that paint colour and wanna blend it with another – just go ahead dip your tip into it and paint on! If you don’t wanna ‘contaminate’ your paint bottles/ paint set, you can use a pallet for your paint like I do.
Also, if you’re
lazy practical like me, you just need to give the middle of your water brush (the water compartment) a little squeeze, squeezing some water out to kinda ‘clean’ your brush tip when you wanna change colours completely. Note that when using this brush. playing with the water consistency also gives you a different look.
Above are two verses I painted with my water brush 🙂 I used 3 colours here – turquoise, purple and dark blue. There’s definitely room for improvement, but I suppose it’s pretty alright for a 2 a.m. painting session 😉 So for those who have been hesitating to try, hesitate no more! Grab yourself a water brush from your nearby stationary store and paint away!
