Yep, you read that right. You CAN at least get the look of watercolor painting with Chalk Couture paste, a plastic bag and some distilled water. It’s real easy to do. As a matter of fact, it would make a great for a great project to do with kids if they don’t mind messy fingers. Yes, this is a Messy Jessie project. Hey, live a little. Get in there and create.
In nutshell, this technique involves adding water to the tiniest amount of chalk paste, spreading it on a plastic bag, flipping the bag over onto your surface to transfer the watercolor onto it, then spreading the watercolor across the surface with your fingers to make your watercolor background. Dry your surface, then you can chalk a design onto it. I think it turned out really pretty, don’t you?
This is the Endless Wonder transfer on an 8X10 faux watercolored canvas. I used Couture Teal, Cadet, and Ocean Mist to do the faux watercolor background. I am also using the Fuzzing Towel, Transfer Trimmers, Fine Mist Sprayer, Stir Sticks, Color Trays and Mini Squeegees.
Check out the video below to see how I did the faux watercolor technique.
Stay Safe. Stay Home. Chalk On.
