Anything Goes - Dawn Heald

Morning all,

Saturday again, another week gone,
another week nearer Christmas!

Looking back at the projects our
DT has made over the year, I thought this one was
definitely worth showing again!
Wonderful Brushos and an amazing 
tutorial by Dawn.

Dawn says -

"I decided to really experiment with Brusho's and show their versatility. 

 The only thing I didn't get on to are resist techniques.

They mixed with everything I tried and stayed
 put, as long as the
 colour crystals are fixed with thickener, water,
 mediums, they stay.

         To make a sprinkler, I've shown below how to put some                         paper over, tape round with masking tape and
                               poke a few holes in the top.
             The lids do fit back on without having to remove your                                           sprinkler each time.

First off I made a colour swatch of all the pots,
 mixed with water
 and then Brusho Thickener. As you only
 need small amounts of colour
 crystals I used a straw that I cut into a V 
scoop shape at the end to
 take colour out of the pot.

Brusho Thickener tip - if you are having trouble
 getting it to dissolve
 in the water, heat in microwave for ten seconds. 
It works. I made up 
a smaller batch using 150ml water to 5 grams
 of thickener powder.

Here's an art journal page I made using various ways
 to apply Brushos.

I really do recommend these pots of
 wonderful colour".

Well I hope you found this really interesting.
Thank you Dawn for all your hard work!
I think you will find these Brusho's are amazing!

So this is what Dawn used -

For the Art Journal page Dawn used -

So just a little of what you can do with Brusho's.
I hope you have been inspired to have a go with them.
You will not be disappointed!

Tomorrow is Weekly Challenge Day....
what shall it be I wonder....
