Let’s take our creativity for a drive and try some new things: Pigment crystals, liquid watercolor, and acrylic inks.
Our first stop is Brusho. This is simply concentrated watercolor pigment powder. Think of it like freeze-dried coffee crystals. Add water, and it makes magic. There are two brands I use: Brusho and Ken Oliver’s Color Burst.
Sprinkle the powdered pigment like you would adding salt on your food when you shouldn’t be eating salt. Lightly! If you use too much, you won’t get to see magic on your paper.

Our next stop is liquid watercolor. My favorite brands are Schmincke Aqua Drops and Dr Ph Martin Hydrus. (please note the Dr. Ph Martin Hydrus formula is made with pigments and is lightfast, while their Radiant Concentrated Watercolor is dye-based and will fade.)
Schmincke Aqua Drops are highly pigmented — a little goes a LONG way. Trust me!
Our next stop is right around the corner…. where we will introduce Brusho/pigment crystals to liquid watercolor. They get along so well!
Our last stop on our journey today is Schmincke Acrylic inks on Mineral Paper. Mineral paper is made from rocks, and results in a non-absorbent paper (similar to Yupo). Can be used with watercolor, acrylic, inks…
