Big Eyed Owl Watercolor Card: Oddball Art, DecoArt

Howdy from Joi@RR!

This project was done on a 8 x 10 watercolor paper.

I have been in love with DecoArt Metallic Lustre
paints for a long time. In this project I am 
using them as watercolors - so fun!! 

Add your paints randomly for your background.

When dry... cover front and back of your paper with 
Matt Medium. It will protect your background
and help keep your paper from curling.

When your paper is dry, trace your
image using Americana Transfer Paper.

Paint your image.
This is completely done with Metallic Lustres.

After the Lustre was dry, I added Translucent White
Fluid Acrylics to make the feathers more intricate.
 I also added Carbon Black for the edges and eyes. 

In this photo you can see some of the 
INCREDIBLE Metallic Lustre Shimmer.
