I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy and Healthy New Year. Greeting from Annie Arkwright too for those of you who have met her. ha ha.
Before I show you may I say this is Joanne Boon Thomas 's inspiration, the method shown on her Brusho Secrets DVD. Her Tuition is second to none. All I know about brusho is due to her. There is a short trailer on YouTube, Brusho Secrets Trailer, also free brusho and watercolour videos, which I recommend you watch.
Here's my step by step process, instructions with each separate photo.
Here are some of the different colours I tried
A4 size. Circles drawn in permanent ink I used a Sharpie. (feint pencil would be lost in the brusho) Waxed in strings for baubles and patterns with either candle or crayon. Sprinkle on brusho, notice how few crystals are needed.
Spray with water close up to the paper on the left hand side for maximum water effect, higher up on the right hand side to secure the brusho on the paper. Tilt the board. Dab out puddle with kitchen roll
Use brusho like w/c in your palette (shake out only a few crystals and add water) to add colour to middle bauble or to add shading, and just add brush loaded with water and join together some of the speckled brusho on the right hand bauble.
Happy brushoing if you try it. And thanks to Joanne Boon Thomas for the fun I have with brusho <3
