A Burst of Color with Pigment Sprinkles

Working with Pigment Sprinkles is, in a word....fun!  Sprinkling a little on a piece of Watercolor paper spritzed with water is like watching fireworks.  Every little shake gives you a burst of color.  The result is amazing....and is so quick and easy.  The longest part is waiting for the paper to dry so you can finish your… Continue reading A Burst of Color with Pigment Sprinkles
