Water brush tutorial: How to Use a Waterbrush for Watercolor Painting


Chromatek Watercolor Brush Pens, 52 ct

Creating smooth watercolor effects on a piece of paper or canvas has all sorts of calming effects and can bring simple peace and joy to the artist. Cleaning up at the end, however, can be a messy ordeal that is noticeably less soothing than the act of painting. Watercolor markers offer a chance to replicate all the brush strokes and paint effects of watercolor painting, but they come in a basic marker that has a cap on it. Use the watercolor markers to make detailed lines and create drawings that have more precision than your standard watercolor paintbrush can offer, then put the caps back on your markers and toss them into your bag for the easiest cleanup you can imagine.

There is one big distinction that actually separates watercolor markers from traditional watercolor paints. Watercolor markers are actually full of dye and not the usual pigment that makes up the color of watercolor paints, according to Amy Markham, artist, art teacher and creator of Starling, a podcast dedicated to helping artists develop depth in their creative practice.

“Most watercolor markers on the market are not actually watercolor at all, although they can create a similar effect,” Markham points out. “Watercolor paint is pigment-based, where watercolor markers are dye-based.”

Each style of watercolor paint has its benefits, but the watercolor markers steal the show when it comes to fine details and vibrancy that the combination of watercolor pencils and paint can achieve. The two mediums of dye and pigment cannot necessarily be used together without thought, says Markham.

“Both are capable of creating interesting effects but only pigment-based ones can really be used along with traditional watercolor paints. If you want to use the dye-based markers with watercolor paint, it should only be used on top of the paint to detail and glaze,” Markham adds. “They should never be used under watercolor paint as it will not mix well.”

Watercolor markers, sometimes referred to as brush pens, have a soft tip that mimics a fine tip paintbrush. This tip is fed the wet color from within, but it behaves very similarly to a fine paintbrush when you begin using it. The easiest way to use them is to draw in the lines and colors where you want them and then come back with a bit of water on a clean brush to blend the fine lines down and create the style you imagine when you think of watercolor paintings. There is a useful water brush that comes with some sets that can be filled with clean water at the beginning of your session and used to blend colors without adding any further dye or pigment to them. With this handy water brush, you might not even need to have a cup of water on hand while making your watercolor painting — one less spilling hazard!

To add even more convenience to your artistic endeavors, there are kits that have dual tips on each marker. One end is a very fine tip that will help make highly detailed and precise lines in your work, which is no easy feat when using a traditional brush. The other end of the marker is a broader tip that helps fill in large swaths of color when you need it to. This combination of tips makes the markers highly versatile, which can be a great selling point for someone who is thinking of making this hobby as low-fuss as possible.

Even though they use a water-based dye instead of pigmentation, watercolor markers can still vary in their vibrancy of color, just like a pigmented paint does. The price of a set of watercolor markers is often related to how rich and colorful the dyes used are.

Consider a set of watercolor markers that actually uses pigment for its color. The set typically has dual-tip markers, which are a real treat to paint with, and vibrant pigment-based colors on the inside. This means that the paint coming from these markers can actually blend naturally with other watercolor paints on your paper or canvas. This set is a highly useful tool in fine-tuning the details within a watercolor painting while still allowing the different colors to mix nicely with each other.

A beginner’s guide to watercolour brush techniques

Various brush types and application can result in a soft and dewy composition, or a hard-edged, vibrant scene. Primarily, I’ll use the highest quality round Kolinsky Sable brushes I can find, but I began developing my watercolour techniques with student-grade brushes to discover my preferences.

Although they got the job done, cheaper brushes suffer from stray brush hairs, an inability to hold as much water as I like, and pointy tips that don’t last too long. Once I invested in higher-quality brushes, my technique improved greatly. 

Once you’ve discovered the brushes that you enjoy working with most, it’s important to treat those brushes kindly. While watercolour doesn’t require harsh mediums and rigorous rules to work with, some care goes a long way in preserving your brushes, and that includes reserving them for water media only.

Working with a brush that was previously used with oils or even acrylics will diminish its effectiveness in carrying water and pigment. Keep your brushes upright or flat and pointy and your paintings will thank you for it.

01. Watercolour brush types

The types of brush Kelly uses from top to bottom: Size 1 Kolinsky Sable Liner brush, Size 2 Kolinsky Sable round brush, half-inch synthetic Flat brush, size 1 squirrel hair Mop brush

Every brush has the potential for many uses with watercolour, and some are better than others for specific tasks. Round brushes are the most commonly used because of their versatility. Liner brushes are excellent for maintaining width, and Flat brushes are able to create crisp edges. Finally, a Mop brush is ideal for soaking and distributing large amounts of water.

02. Contouring with a steady hand

McKernan paints on Arches 140lb hot press watercolour paper

To achieve precise strokes, your application technique requires a steady hand. Sitting while aiming for precision is best, but you can also stabilise your hand with your little finger anchoring the paper (I tend to use Arches hot pressed watercolour paper.)

Another technique when using a Round brush is to twist the brush while dragging, to achieve thinner lines. Remember, the larger the Round brush, the more versatile your stroke will be.

Another thing to keep in mind is that, when loading up your brush with watercolour, you need to pay attention to the ratio of water pigment as this affects the fluidity of the paint as it’s applied to the surface. It’s also important to practise gaining control of the brush by creating strokes that butt up against each other but don’t overlap.

03. Varying the line width

With experience you can create consistent colours in a single stroke

To get the most out of your brushes, learning to vary the line width can contribute to some expressive strokes. This helps to develop a sense of the watercolour that your brushes contain in one stroke, which in turn assists in consistency.

Take the tree paint test on the left in the image above. A large round brush is excellent for creating its branches that vary in width. Meanwhile the trunk is a good example of how, once you’re comfortable, you can challenge yourself to maintain consistency as the watercolour dries.

As for the brush test on the right, this shows how a Flat brush can create flat shapes, zigzags and expressive marks. It’s possible to create varying widths with Round and Flat brushes, demonstrating their versatility on paper.

04. Drybrushing creates interesting effects

Test out different brushes and discover the different kinds of drybrushing marks they can make

Especially effective with a Flat brush, drybrushing is achieved when the bristles separate because there’s less moisture present. This can be used to create a range of effects, including hair, grass and wood grain. The shorter the brush, the easier this is to achieve. 

Try varying your application technique with coarser brushes, such as scrubbing, patting or dragging at various angles. I enjoy creating expressive eyelashes by twisting a lowmoisture Round brush.

Drybrushing can be tricky with sable brushes, so you may want to experiment with brushes that encourage more texture with coarser hair, such as synthetic blends, hog or ox bristle brushes.

05. Combining brush techniques

This lively portrait uses several different watercolour brush painting techniques

With time and practice, you’ll discover ways in which you can combine techniques to create interesting results. In my portrait above I’ve combined several different brushstrokes to create a dynamic painting.

 For filling in the face, I’ve used my trusty size 2 Round brush, layering several times to build up my value range. Meanwhile I’ve used my liner brush on the hair outline. This enables me to more easily maintain a consistent width in the stroke.

If you look closely, you’ll see pencil marks in the bottom left hand corner. To lighten pencil lines before applying watercolour, roll a kneaded eraser over the lines to gently lift the graphite. Later on, this makes it easier to erase once the watercolour is dry. Finally, I’ve used a Flat brush to lay down a base layer with dry brush texture at the edges.

Watercolour requires some intuitiveness and so the more comfortable you are with your brush techniques, the more receptive you’ll be to those magical moments when the watercolour tells you what your next move will be!

Tips for Lettering Using a Waterbrush

If you’ve been following my Instagram, you know how obsessed I’ve been lately with lettering using a waterbrush! It combines two strong passions of mine – watercolor and typography and I can’t get enough! Since I’ve been experimenting like a crazy woman, I wanted to share some tips I’ve learned over the past few weeks. I’m no expert by any means, but I’ve gotten into a rhythm and I’ve been really happy with how I’ve improved by remembering a few simple things. If this is something you’d like to try, my hope is that this video will save you time, money and supplies. Speaking of supplies, everything mentioned in the video that I’m currently using is listed below the vid 😉 For more on brush lettering with watercolor, check out my master course!

Tips for Lettering Using a Waterbrush

Cool Designs for Lettering

  • Brush Pen Blender
  • Plastic Bag
  • Water
  • Thick paper (bleed proof)
  • Brush Pens 

Here we are going to start off with taking out our brush pens and just scribbling onto the plastic bag. You don’t have to use a plastic bag you could just use a regular old piece of plastic and just scribble on it. This will lead to ink to stay on the plastic.

Once you have done that you are going to want to grab your blender and dip it into the water and then into the ink (which is on the plastic bag).

Here now you can start illustrating or writing a word or phrase. You can also do this without the water, I just find that the water gives it a nice watercolor effect.

This will also lead to your letters to fade out.

You could do the exact same thing with a regular brush instead of using a brush blender.

Another idea…

Your going to need:

  • Plastic Bag 
  • Water
  • Brush Pens
  • Brush Pen Blender or brush
  • Thick Paper (waterproof)
  • White Pen/ White Acrylic paint

For this, we are just going to again scribble on a piece of plastic. 

We are going to dip our blender/ brush into the water and then start doing a base layer onto the paper. You are going to want to just put a few colors and just blend. 

Once it is dry with your white pen you could just draw some little designs, doodles, and even lettering. This will give you a nice watercolor background for some of your awesome lettering/ watercolor design.    


You have just learned that you can dip brush pens into water to blend, create a fade out technique, and to do watercolor.

I hope that all of these techniques will help you out. If you have any other ideas or questions feel free to comment!

How to Use Waterbrush Pens to Create Beautiful Artwork

Hello all! My name is Lena and I started off as a book blogger – I am now venturing into other niches such as art and lifestyle. Today I am going to show you how to make the best use of waterbrush pens to help you create beautiful artwork.

Supplies You Need:

Waterbrush Set

Let’s start with the supplies you will need. For beginners, I would recommend getting the Zenacolor waterbrush set which also comes with a free aqua brush! There are 24 beautiful and highly pigmented colours in this set and this is the first set I used when starting out with waterbrush pens. For today’s tutorial, I have used a 20 colour set from Mozart Supplies – these are very good as well, there is a lot of water in the ink and the colours are mostly bright, however, I believe for beginners, the Zenacolor set have a better range of colours. You can also purchase separately a set of Mozart Supplies aqua brushes (I have the set of 4) – these come in different brush sizes and depends on the kind of paintings you want to do. I am using one of the smaller round brushes.


Now you’ve got your brushes and pens, you will need good quality paper for these waterbrushes to be more effective. For this tutorial, I have used 300gsm watercolour paper from Cass Art. There are many sizes of paper pads you can get. Another good brand is Daler & Rowney or Fluid. To be honest, any 300 gsm, cold-pressed paper should be decent! Claire Fontaine is also a really good quality brand for watercolour paper – however, they are of the more expensive variety.

Where You Can Get The Supplies:

Zenacolor waterbrush set or Mozart Supplies waterbrush set

Mozart Supplies aqua brushes set (optional if you already have an aqua brush)

300 gsm watercolour paper – Cass Art or Daler & Rowney


The first thing you should do is ‘swatches’ with your waterbrush pens. You can create a grid for this or do it without. Colour in a square and then drag the colour down using your aqua brush to create a gradient keeping a square or rectangle shape on your paper (if no water comes out of your aqua brush, give it a small squeeze). Do this for all colours in your set. If your pens have names or numbers on them, you can write them down below each corresponding swatch. Once you have completed this, you can keep the swatches in front of you so when you are painting you can easily choose which colours you want to use.

Here is what mine looks like when I swatched my Zenacolor pens: (apologies for poor quality photo!)

Finally, you are now prepared to start painting!

Here are 3 of my favourite ways on how to use waterbrush pens:

Tutorial 1 – Florals

Florals are the simplest and most relaxing things to paint. They are dainty, pretty and can be used for bullet journals and scrapbooking. Here’s how to create pretty florals:

Tutorial 2 – Loose roses

Loose roses are equally as fun and therapeutic as the florals – it’s a different technique which involves allowing yourself to let go and be spontaneous in your bush strokes to create a loose rose shape. It can be done over and over again across the page, even in different colours. Add leaves and other foliage to create diversity in your artwork. Here’s how you can do it:

Tutorial 3 – Mini landscape discs

These are mini because if you do them too large the ink from the pens can dry too quickly and then it will be hard to create a proper gradient between colours even with lots of water (try to avoid waterlogging your paper). I absolutely love doing these little landscape skylines – and I love how I can do them in all colours. The effect the aqua brush can give is beautiful and I think the silhouette of trees or mountains is really atmospheric. Here is how you can do your own mini landscape:

These are only 3 of many things you can do with waterbrush pens. I am still discovering what the boundaries are, but I am learning how to make my artwork more defined and clear. The best thing for me about waterbrush pens are that you can carry them around with you because they are lightweight, they are not messy, and are easy and very therapeutic to use. I am very glad that I have discovered these pens and I am excited to see what else I can do these amazing things!

Thank you very much for reading my blog post and I hope my tutorials have inspired you to be creative! To see more of my artwork, here are my links:

How To Create a Watercolor Painting Effect in Photoshop

Watercolour paintings are a hugely popular art style that can be incorporated into your design projects, but you don’t need to be a master artist to create such imagery when Adobe Photoshop can produce realistic watercolour effects with a cocktail of built-in filters. In today’s tutorial I take you through a range of settings that will convert any photograph into a hand-made watercolour style painting.

Unlimited Downloads: 1,200,000+ Photoshop Actions, Brushes, Mockups, Stock Photos & Design Assets Ad

The effect we’ll be producing in this tutorial mimics the aesthetics of a hand painted picture using watercolour paints. A range of Photoshop filters will produce the foundations of the effect, then the addition of a paper texture and deformation with watercolour Photoshop brushes add an extra level of realism to produce a convincing effect.

Open your chosen image in Adobe Photoshop. I’m using this photograph of the Golden Gate Bridge by Patrick Tomasso from Unsplash.com. Right click on the background image layer and select Convert to Smart Object.

Head to the Filter menu and select Filter Gallery. Navigate to the Artistic category and select Dry Brush, then change the settings to 10 Brush Size, 10 Brush Detail and 1 Texture. Click OK to apply the effect.

Select the Filter Gallery menu option again, making sure not to choose the option at the top, which would reapply the same effect. This time select the Cutout filter and configure the settings to 5 Number of Levels, 4 Edge Simplicity and 1 Edge Fidelity.

In the Layers panel, double click the tiny settings icon next to the top Filter Gallery entry. Change the blending mode to Pin Light.

Click the Filter menu again, this time go to Blur > Smart Blur. Enter the settings of 5 Radius, 100 Threshold and change the Quality to High.

Double click the settings icon and change the blending mode of the Smart Blur effect to Screen and reduce the opacity to 50%.

Head to Filter > Stylize > Find Edges. Edit the Blending Options and change the blending mode to Multiply to render this layer’s background transparent, this will leave just the details of the find edges effect to represent pencil sketch lines.

Find a free paper texture, such as this Ivory Off White Paper Texture. Copy and Paste the texture into the Photoshop document and scale it to size to fit over the canvas. Change the blending mode to Multiply.

Download and install this free set of Watercolor Photoshop Brushes [Edit: The original brushes used in this tutorial are no longer available. Try these instead]. Add a Layer Mask to the Background layer, then use the ALT+Backspace shortcut to fill the mask with black, which will effectively erase the entire photograph. Select the Brush tool and choose one of the watercolour brushes.

Switch the foreground colour to white in the toolbar, then use the square bracket keys to adjust the size of the brush. Click around the canvas to restore the photograph with watercolour style bleeding around the edges.

After a few clicks, change the brush to an alternative watercolour option and continue restoring the image with a range of watercolour tones to avoid repetition.

Since all the effects have been set up as part of a Smart Object, then watercolour painting effect can be applied to an alternative photograph by editing the contents of the Smart Object layer. Double click the Smart Object layer’s thumbnail to open the .PSB file. Paste in a different image then save and close the file. Return to the main document to find all the effects have been instantly applied to the new picture.

or dry building paints, are natural

and artificial and represent

fine powders of various

colors: white, yellow, blue, red, etc.

So that the pigments adhere firmly to the dyed

surfaces, bonding materials are added to them. In aqueous formulations

add glue, and in oil formulations –

drying oil.

Natural drying oil is made by cooking

at a temperature of 275 ° C

linseed or hemp oil with

the addition of some special substances. Drying oil can

also be synthetic.

Oil paints

prepared in factories like this: drying oil is mixed with dry

pigments and grind the mixture on special

paint grinders. These paints are used for work inside and

outside the room,

painting metal, wood, plaster with them.

Drying time for oil paints after painting

Enamels –

these are paint formulations prepared by

lays down the paint composition. Unprimed

surfaces absorb unevenly

paint, therefore, in places it will be

more, in places less and the color will become uneven – spots or stripes.Under the oil paint of the best

the primer is linseed oil.

Various tools are used for painting:

brushes, rollers, spatulas, rulers.


made from bristle and horsehair.

Fly brushes have a length

a bundle of hair up to 180 mm and a stick

length up to 2 m. Whitewash brushes (Fig. 99, a) have

width up to 200 mm, thickness 45..65mm with hair length

100 mm. Maklovitsy (Fig. 99, b) are flat brushes with a width of 25 …

100 mm, made of high quality

bristles or badger hair. They are used for

smoothing out freshly applied paint.


brushes (Fig. 99, d) are intended for holding

narrow horizontal stripes (panels) or for painting

hard-to-reach places.

Trimming (Fig.99, e) are used for special processing

freshly painted surface. By facing, uniform blows are applied, smoothing

irregularities in the paint applied with a brush.

To perform painting work, instead of brushes, use

rollers (Fig. 100), more productive than brushes. Rolls are made from

fur or foam rubber.

Surface painting begins with the choice of an option

interior decoration of the room, similar to the options for pasting walls with wallpaper: in one

or two colors, with a border, frieze or tapestry, etc.(fig. 95).

All surfaces must be repaired before painting,

dry and prime.

The cleanliness of the painted surface largely depends on

force of pressure on the brush. If you press the brush lightly, then the paint lays down in the form

narrow streaks or stripes. With strong pressure on the brush, paint drips from it.

Each subsequent layer of paint should be applied only on well-dried


The direction of the strokes during coloring plays an essential role.

If the wall is painted twice, then the first strokes are parallel to the floor, and when

painting with the second layer – vertically from the ceiling to the floor (Fig. 101). At

painting the ceiling, the strokes of the last layer are drawn parallel to the light rays,

falling from the window.

The joint of two paints of different colors is not always even,

therefore, the joint is painted over with an even strip of paint of a different color – a panel.The panel is drawn (taken away) along a ruler or stencil (Fig. 102).

To give oil-painted surfaces

increased gloss and prolong service life

paints, they are varnished.

stencils are used to apply various patterns to the walls.

Stencils are made from thick paper. A drawing is applied to it and cut out

with a sharp knife so that the patterns do not fall out, for which they leave

bridges (strips of paper) connecting them together.For every color

make their own stencil (Fig. 103).

Stencil drawings are performed together. One worker presses the stencil against

surfaces, and the other wets the handbrake in the paint so that it is semi-dry, and

applies them to the stencil with light butt-facing blows, filling the space of the picture

in stencil paint. After printing, an exact copy of the drawing remains on the surface


When finishing with multi-color patterns, each color is stuffed with a separate brush and

only after the previously stuffed drawing has dried.


At the end of painting, brushes and rollers are wrung out and washed in a solvent.

It is allowed to store the brush or roller lowered into the container for a short time.

Brush in decoupage

Glazing with acrylic paints – how to make a beautiful decor with your own hands

Hello everyone, friends!

Ta-daaam! This Thursday, another decoupage master class was held, where novice needlewomen learned how to make a brush and what glaze with acrylic paints is.I hasten to share my impressions of the meeting and a step-by-step overview of the process by which you can easily make a watch with your own hands at home.

And we decorated a wooden blank.

Using a gas burner, we carried out firing over the surface and cleaned off the burnt soft fibers with a wire brush. That’s all the brushing.

The central part was covered with acrylic primer, a printout with a favorite picture was glued on.

It remains to create beautiful color transitions on the brushed surface and the watch is almost ready.

For this, a white patina or, diluted with water, white building paint was applied.

Leave for 2-3 minutes and wipe off excess with a damp cloth.

When patinated, the white color will remain only in the recesses and the wood pattern will become even more contrasting. If desired, you can glaze with paints. To do this, just like with patina, we dilute the acrylic paint with water, apply it to the surface with a brush and wipe off the excess with a napkin. The translucent color will remain in the relief.

On the sailboat watch, you can see that we have added yellow and turquoise colors. We cover the finished watch with acrylic varnish.

The numbers are colored, varnished and glue on “Crystal Moment” glue. Finally, apply bituminous wax or bitumen varnish to the edges.

And these are the beauties that came out at the next creative gatherings.

It was very nice to meet the girl Rina. You look at her work and you can’t say that she tries herself in decoupage for the first time.Bravo, Rina! The circle of decoupage women is becoming wider and wider.

Our fairy Ella got a very light, airy clock. As beautiful as Ella herself. The color of the watch was matched to her interior, I think they fit well into her style.

And also … Irina has finished work on a huge tray! I said that she would surprise us again, and nothing else was to be expected.

A detailed photo of a master class on decorating a tray is already on the blog pages.

I thank the girls for participating in the master class, for the beauty and light creative atmosphere with which they filled this day.I look forward to the next meetings. Bye Bye.

Another watch with brushed technique.

    Tips for decoupling on different surfaces

    Finishing furniture

    Before decoupage furniture, be sure to clean the surface you are decoupage.When separating a large area, it is better to use thicker paper as it does not wrinkle as easily. To make the paper fold easily, let it soak in water until it becomes pliable. Be sure to keep your hands moist to prevent the paper from tearing. Stick on the paper before finishing and let it dry. Be sure to check your design throughout the drying process to get rid of bubbles. After drying, apply decoupage to the furniture. You can apply three to five coats to ensure coverage.Then apply sealant spray and polyurethane to ensure complete protection.

    Decoupling fabric

    Be sure to iron the fabric you are using before adding the adhesive to avoid wrinkles. Apply the glue to the fabric and let it dry to harden the fabric. Then apply even more glue to the fabric and add the cutout or material you are peeling to the fabric. Let it dry, add more glue to secure the design, and then spray with acrylic sealant to protect your project.
