The Wet-In-Wet Watercolor Technique: Mastering The Basics To Paint Exotic Fish
Step 14: Paint Splattering With A Toothbrush
For the finishing touch, take out your old toothbrush, wet it, and scrub it on some of the white gouache paint. Hold it about 1-2 inches above your painting, then gently run a thumb over the bristles while you move the toothbrush across your painting. The paint will fall in a small splatter on your painting, and is not too difficult to control where it goes, so have fun with it. Just try not to overdo the splatter – although it won’t be as opaque when it’s dry, you still don’t want it to distract from your colorful exotic fish.
