After painting my hummingbird hawk moth for today’s world watercolour month in dylon fabric dye ( plus a little conventional watercolour).
I decided to put together some swatches for anybody interested in trying out this different painting medium . It paints and behaves in a very similar way to brusho, if you have any packets of dylon sat around the house, give it a try. The first swatches are dylon mixed with water and painted with a brush, following the mixing ( very few crystals are required, I guess for a more intense colour you could add more crystals.
The second are crystals sprinkled on cheap watercolour paper and then spritzed with water, the crystals are a little larger than brusho, and I wonder if the effects could be better if I ground then down to a smaller size, would it work a little bette)? Some really beautiful colour emerge, just like brusho.
