Instructions 

My favorite thing about art and painting is watching the colors swirl together and mix. Using the new Dina Wakley MEdia Glosses is an easy way to make a mess, watch colors swirl, and have a little abstract fun!

Step 2: Make a mess! Using the droppers, spread some Gloss around the watercolor paper. Try to stick with colors from the same family (warm vs cool) on each sheet so that they will not mix and make mud. Spray with water and watch the colors spread and swirl around. While it’s still wet, scribble with a Scribble Stick or Stabilo All pencil.
