Watercolor Easter craft using sharpie art pens.
Watercolor painting is such a lovely art technique but surely not the easiest for the children to master. Even I can’t fully master the blending technique and most art and crafts we do with watercolor results in a slushy looking dark picture that nobody can tell what it is!
But what if I told you there was an easy way to master this technique that even small children can do? And with materials you probably already have at home!
In this post I am going to teach you how to make alcohol ink with sharpies.
This is also a great way to mix colors. After trying a handful of sharpie art techniques I think this is one of the easiest ways to use sharpies.
If you ever wonder how to blend sharpies in an original way, then this rubbing alcohol sharpie tutorial is right for you too!
