Most people will know most of this information but this is a brief explanation of paint as I understand it and some places to learn more if you want...
Link to two minute you tube clip from Interweave re: opaque vs transparent paint
The same goes for water colours.
And some other links for more information...
And one of my favorite "you tube" channels to watch is the Colouricious you tube channel
and their web site colouricious.com
In fact Ineke Berlyn has done a DVD for Colouricious on Lutradur and you can check it out on either the you tube channel or at their web site. The clip on you tube shows a misting technique to paint a landscape picture....
I am going to split my samples into two posts because this one is a bit long already.

Lesley Riley gives her tip on paint.
Hint from Lesley...
When I apply the colour to the Lutradur with various paints with the fabric dry I don’t get an even colour. Is there a trick of what brush to use or other hint that you can give me and the blog readers?

I won't be back until Monday night with a post. We are off to clean at the cottage so we can go with the family next weekend. I want to take some pictures of the trees with no leaves on to make some prints for my lutradur transfers... that we will be covering in the near future.
Whats Up Next? More colouring with water colours and more.
