-HOW COLOUR SPREADS ON A TISSUE PAPER-
It was like a "trial and error' experiment for us. I wanted to let my girl experience how the colour dots marked on a tissue paper spreads around. In our first attempt, we used a paint brush to sprinkle the dots with water. That didn't work well. Too less water didn't bring the effect we wanted. Then, we used a spray bottle. That too didn't work. Then, we used a small tin to pour water on to it. That even didn't work. Too much water resulted in all the colours getting mixed up without showing the effect that we wanted to see. All these because, we had no droppers here.
And this was our final one. Here, she is using a spoon. lil one loved loved this one a lot and was asking for more of this. She was enjoying happily, while observing how the colour was spreading on to other parts. Via activities like this, she gets to practice colour names. When I name a specific colour, she pours water on to that specific circle.
Here are the #whitenightswatercolor swatches I did the other day. These are scanned and the colours are pretty accurate, especially the first page (swipe to see the other one ➡️). There is a slight desaturation towards the edges of the second page, but other than that they're good and can serve as pretty decent reference.
Excuse the handwriting and uneven layout, I didn't make these with Instagram in mind, only thought they might be useful to you guys when I was done. If there's something you can't read, let me know.
As you can see, the colours are pretty vibrant. I love the maroon I was able to get at the bottom of the first page, so juicy! On the second page I was mainly checking out green and earth tones, hoping to find something terra verte-ish. You can judge by yourselves if I succeed. Hope you find these useful!
