Doodling is fun! I would love to do more Zentangles but I feel I don’t have the patience. But I am so proud to have accomplished this just taking my doodling to another level. AND – it wouldn’t look as fine as it does without the Permawriter and Splash Inks. Makes the job easier and lots more fun!!!! Added some extra elements to this for dimension and texture. Can be used on a journal, as a book mark, altered art, and scrapbook.
There is a lot of information on how to mix and use Splash Inks. One is online at the Yasutomo website. Then there is YouTube, and FB has a dedicated page to Splash Inks! Tutorials, ideas, so much more. Splash Inks are delightful! Any color you want, you can have without buying a lot of different bottles of ink. Just follow the recipe card and mix colors to your heart’s content.
The recipe cards are comprehensive with how many drops of each color needed to create the hue you want. There is a quick guide to what the codes are, like BL = blue. I used my Niji palette to mix my colors, but larger batches can be stored in little jars or even spray bottles!!!
1. Draw your favorite doodle or Zentangle with pencil. Trace over that with the Permawriter. Use a nylon, or kneaded eraser and erase all the pencil lines. Looks like you drew it freehand!!
2. Mix your inks.
3. Use your Waterbrush and paint the colors you have created.
4. Finish art after inks have dried by collaging elements, die cut words, or even adding wire and beads. Die cuts are painted with Splash Inks!
5. Enjoy or use art as you please!!!
The color chart has complete instructions including how to hold the bottle for ease of drops into your container!!!!!!
Happy New Years! May it hold all good things as well as creativity designing new art.
