Textures in Ink and Watercolor by hibbary Textures in Ink and Watercolor by hibbary
I promised to make this a long time ago. I had done the experiments, taking photos and scans, but became busy before arranging the tutorial.

I dunno if you've ever made a tutorial, but they take bloody forever. I spent all day on this crazy thing.

A lot of this feels really obvious and self-explanatory to me, and it may to you, too, but I know that to some people this is all very new so I kept it pretty simple.

I may, at a later date, add on the bubble texture and maybe a blotting kind of texture. Right now, I am calling it finished XO

I don't remember if I offered these textures as a resource yet, but I meant to. If not, I'll arrange a packet shortly.

Please forgive any kookoo mistakes. By the end I was like this --> @_@ and not sound of mind.

Wow, that's so cool and inspirational! I always say that I can't paint, but... doesn't hurt to keep trying!

We used to do this in art class a lot, but with a slightly different method. This one works just as well though.
