Watercolor Pencils and More: Tips and Tricks


Welcome back!

Today, Melanie Muenchinger is here with a new technique video for you!

From Melanie:


Today I have a no line watercolor pencil tutorial for my lotus and stem and leaf elements in A Year of Flowers. Loving how easy these flowers are to color with just a few lines, shades and a waterbrush! I am excited to find some new coloring tools that complement our stamp sets from Gina K. Designs so beautifully.

    It is very beautiful. I just bought my daughter a set of watercolor pencils for her birthday, and your demonstration was perfect for her to learn how to use them. Thanks.

    It is just beautiful. I have bought.several of Arteza’s products and I like them pretty well. Having so many colors IS a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing your experience and thanks for the code.

    I wanted to watch this so bad but could not hear it. I will try another computer, but haven’t had any problems with this one before.

    I just went to buy the pencils. They were marked 15% off and sold out. So sad. Based on your video, I think I could actually manage watercoloring with these. Oh well. Tomorrow is another day LOL. Love your videos.

    Beautiful; I really like the way you made the borderlines and used the water pen to draw in the color. You make it looks so easy:-).

    So glad to see you using the Arteza Watercolor Pencils I have them too and love them. Also just got the Arteza Woodless ones which are really creamy. I use both Gamsol and the Water Brushes with them. Loved watching your Video. Thanks for sharing. You did a beautiful job.

    I have Arteza Watercolor Brushes and Arteza Pencils (not watercolor) and love-love-love both products. This is a beautiful idea. I may have to invest in these pencils too.

    About 2 weeks ago when you were having a sale, I ordered the
    Aspen flowers for gatefold cards and some mini ink pads. Nothing came–so guess it didn’t go through. Guess I will have to find everything again. Mary. whitjm2@verizon.net
