color burst

At CHA, Ken Oliver launched a new product – color burst.

I, of course, immediately had to take it all out for a spin to see how it worked and mixed in with my current obsession with creating doodles.

This is a fun way to add color to a project, especially when you are creating backgrounds.  There are lots of great applications, but this is how I am using it in conjunction with some of my doodles.  It is fun, easy to use, and I just wanted to share it with you.

It is a highly concentrated watercolor powder product.  You mist and then you sprinkle – that’s it!

Here’s a little project that I have put together…

What you need:

  • watercolor paper
  • color burst
  • mini-mister
  • pen

How it works…

1.  Grab a piece of watercolor paper and mist it with some water.
