How To: Stained-Glass Effect with Watercolor

Noella AndresArtist Tips, Watercolor

Jules from @wildflowerlettering demonstrates how to do a really clean and clear stained-glass effect with watercolor using the Heritage 4050 round #12 brush.

 

“I love this brush (and its smaller sizes, too) because it holds a good amount of water and distributes the watercolor smoothly and evenly. The brush maintains its shape and has a really nice point. The brush itself is crafted so well! It doesn’t shed its bristles and the handle on the brush doesn’t crack, break and shed (like others!) after the brush gets washed. The handle is also such a good size, it’s very comfortable to hold.”

 

Watch Jules below as she demonstrates how using thin tape to section off your work creates the perfect stained-glass effect.

 

Be a pop of colour! 💛💚💜💙🧡 I’ve been in such a watercolour painting mood lately. It’s so fun and relaxing. Don’t let the speed of this video fool you, it was edited and sped up by 20% to fit into the Insta timeframe. Normally I work really slowly and watch those colors bleed into eachother. It’s such an awesome process. Totally mesmerizing. 😍 Hope you had a great weekend friends!
