Blown Ink

Blown Ink!

…sounds interesting doesn’t it?

I guess we have all tried this technique long before it was even called a technique! Haven’t we all blown watercolors through a straw as kids. I used to do it all the time and really enjoyed coming up with new forms and shapes. Lately it’s becoming extremely popular in abstract art . Sometime back I had tried this with watercolors and created a is a link. Today, I thought of trying this with Splash Inks.

Here are a couple of stepped out pics. There is not much to it, just blow through a straw and see some fantastic shapes appear before your eyes!


Yasutomo Niji Splash Inks,

Niji Waterbrush,

Watercolor Paper


Dampen the area a bit and drop a hint of magenta and blow using a straw.

Continue until you achieve your desired form. Mix different greens using the color chart provided with the Splash Inks and sketch around the flowers using the waterbrush.

I loved it so much, I made another one and you can see how each one will be different from the other which makes this so much fun!

Hope you like it and give it a try!

I am having a Splash Ink giveaway on my blog , do stop by if you would like to win one of these lovelies!

See ya!
