Introduction: Watercolor Techniques

For this activity, you will practice using 6 different watercolor techniques.

Step 1: Set Your Materials

Yes, I know the picture is upside down! You will need:

  1. Watercolor brush
  2. A cup of water
  3. Paper towel (for drying your brush)
  4. Watercolor paint!

Step 2: Set Up Your Paper

Take a piece of 9"x 12" heavyweight paper from the shelf and divide it into 6 sections with masking tape. Stick each piece of tape on your clothes a few times before attaching it to the paper. This will make it easier to peel off the paper when you are done.

Step 3: Label Your Spaces

Label each section with a Sharpie with the 6 techniques listed below. Put your name somewhere on the front, as well. Label on the paper, not on the tape.

  • Dry Brush
  • Salt
  • Blot
  • Wet on Wet
  • Crayon Resist
  • Wash

Step 4: Dry Brush

Fill in a space using the dry brush technique. It is described in the photo shown here.

Step 6: Wash

When you are finished, you may remove the masking tape. Please put your artwork on the drying rack to dry. Make sure your name is on your work. The salt can be brushed off when your work is completely dry.
