Mixed Media Watercolor/Prismacolor Snails

About: I'm a mixed media artist from Tacoma, WA. I love making bug/animal, sci-fi, and botanical art.

I made these little snails that can be used as bookmarks, notecards, wall art, or gifts!


140 Lb watercolor paper, masking tape, clipboard, watercolor paint, colored pencils, paint brush

Step 1: Process

The time lapse video shows my process for creating these snails!

Make sure to tape down your paper to some sort of board (I used masking tape and a clipboard), and to let your work dry between using watercolor and pencils. I find it easiest to lightly sketch your design on the paper before applying any watercolor. Enjoy!
