Fun Stuff

Compact Travel Watercolors + Swatches and Color Mixing

Hello, all! Welcome to Watercolor Week! This week I’ll be sharing videos on various watercolor topics. In today’s video, I test out some watercolors I’ve seen online in multiple shops, but eventually found at Amazon. I’ll also be showing the new swatching stamp sets and dies from Waffle Flower.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

For the main swatches, I used the new Color Swatches stamp set. I stamped the main blocks stamp twice to create a swatching area with 48 color areas (I cut off one row so that it was perfect for this 42 set of watercolors). I used Versafine Onyx Black for all the stamping since it’s a waterproof ink.

I then watercolored all of the colors from the travel watercolor set. After swatching all the colors, I wanted to just played a bit so I painted some florals, and practiced mixing colors by painting a color wheel.

Some of these stamps look a bit complicated. But Nina at Waffle Flower has a ton of info about the swatches sets and dies at their site. Check it out here.

    Liked the idea of stacked watercolors. Liked the cost. I’m new to water coloring, but love watching and then trying
    Thanks for the inspiration

    These sets take the pencil and ruler drudgery out of the swatching process, and will enable me to make charts for every medium I have, even mouse, ink, embossing powders etc. This will make cross referencing products while creating very easy!
