I thought I'd share with you whats been happening in my art studio over the past week. One of the things I have been playing with has been making my own sprays.
What you need
Empty spray bottles
Food dyes in whatever colours you like
Something to spray onto, fabric or paper
Very simply all I did was pour a little dye into the bottom of each bottle and slowly add water. Test your sprays until you have your desired colour.
Spray bottles I bought online, you can use ones you have at home.
The food dyes I used, purchased from the supermarket.
Here is my first test page, the colours I have used are Red, Yellow, Blue, Green, Pink, I also made a Purple. I used Artsyville Washi Tape to identify the colours, and it also looks pretty.
Of course the first thing I had to do was make RAINBOWS. This is sprayed onto copy paper.
Sprays on baby wipes and watercolour paper.
A fabric clean up sheet, this is done by printing with all my left over paints and spray overflow.
You want your sprays to be bright when they are wet as I have found once dry they with fade a little bit. You don't have to spend a lot of money on fancy art supplies, look through crafty eyes and see what you can use from around your home.
