Splash Flowers

Hi, it’s Tessa from How to Make Art here to share a fun project with you that uses Splash Inks.  Here is what the finished piece will look like:

Here is what you will need:
*Niji Splash Inks
*Water in a container
*Paintbrushes
*Yasutomo and Company Permawriters, .07 Black
*Watercolor Paper
STEP ONE: Prep your Splash Ink colors by mixing your desired colors and setting them by your work station.  Get your container of water and paintbrushes, and coat your entire sheet of paper with the water:
STEP TWO: Now it’s time to play with the Splash Ink colors you have mixed up!  Use your brush and slowly lay down a few dots of ink into your coating of water before the water dries.  I used a red toned Splash Ink first, then a purple:
STEP THREE: Next, I added some green for leaves and a block of green on the left that I could use to write a quote.
STEP FOUR: Let dry completely.  Now use your Permawriters to draw some details and write a quote in the block you created in Step Three.  I chose one of my favorite quotes by Anais Nin.
Thanks for reading! Have fun making some Splash Ink flowers!
