As promised I wanted to share more about Brusho Colour Crystals with you all and I thought I'd start off by showing you the colors and comparing how they each look on cardstock vs. watercolor paper.
First I'd like to introduce you to what Brusho powders look like... They come in these handy little plastic bottles which hold 15g of powder.
To use you just poke a single hole in the top of the cap. I go right through the little center indentation where the caps are molded.
Below you will find each color of the Brusho Colour Crystals. I have presented them on two different types of paper - the examples on the left were made using Neenah 80lb cardstock, the examples on the right were made using Fabrino 140lb watercolor paper.
To create each sample I spritzed the papers with water then sprinkled 3-4 shakes of each powder and let them dry naturally. You will notice that the crystals move differently on each of the papers usually with very different results. I am assuming this is because of how the papers react to the water. Both looks are very pretty and unique in their own ways.
These colors are in alpha order in each color group...
more red than orange which is why it is in this color family.
more orange IRL than shown in the photo.
White is on plain black cardstock.
There are many many techniques on how to incorporate these powders into your art. I will share a variety of techniques in the coming days and weeks. If you have any questions in the mean time, please feel free to e-mail me or post a ? in the comments section.
