5 Completely Awesome Color Burst Techniques with Ken Oliver


Hey everybody, last week I brought a really fun watercolor product to the market at the Craft and Hobby Association Show in Anaheim California...this product is so different that anything I've ever used to water color before...I really have to share some awesome techniques using Color Burst. 


 You can stencil...


You can mono-print (like gelli-plate)


You can custom dye ribbon to match your projects...


You can create custom flowers, tinted to match your projects, and with the leftover pigment that's on your work surface create really cool water color backgrounds on tags or cardstock!  


I am telling you...Color Burst is awesome stuff, and when you start using it your going to say to yourself...the spray is passe!  

I made a quick technique video, to show you how to do every single one of the techniques I just showed you in this blog post...I apologize for the video quality, I am still learning and some of the examples might be a little bit outside the range of view, I hope you'll excuse my video making and just look at how awesome Color Burst is! 








 

Color Burst will ship in late February and is available wholesale through Product Performers...ask your local retailer to order it now, because once you get your hands on it, you won't want to stop!

  5. Want to use these with *Soulistry* workshops. Any idea of the price and cost of shipping to Canada? Will they only be sold individually or in packages (one of each colour)? Are you located in the US or UK?

    How similar a product is this to Brusho that seems to be available in the UK? I look forward to your response. Thank you.
