Need watercolor paper? Try the new Hero Arts Watercolor Papers in either White or Cream!


Silky Stamping Sponge
This sponge will help you wet the paper or dry brushes!
I took a bunch of watercolor classes growing up and I've seen a lot of different products and paints, but I love that the Hero Arts Watercolor Paint Wheels contain 24 colors in such a small container - no need to worry about cluttering your studio here! If you need opaque colors, this is the way to go.

A few final tips for easier watercoloring:
1. Wet the paper where you want to color if you want a soft, blurry look (make sure to let this dry before beginning with another image - otherwise colors will bleed)
2. Do light colors first and dark colors last! (and make sure paper is dry if you want a clear, dark image - this is known as dry-brushing)
3. If you want a clear image, use less water on your brush and let your paper dry so colors won't bleed
4. If you make a mistake, wet the area and dab with a paper towel until color is removed

Craft Away!!

  1. Servicing your air conditioner often will keep your energy costs down. The greater your air conditioning unit is running, the much less resources it'll use, thus, saving you moeny on vitality bills. It is also wise to preserve your unit frequently as opposed to pay large repair fees when it finally breaks down. A service call is a lot cheaper than a replace the unit call.
