Facial Tissues Required For This Watercolor Technique

Wad up some facial tissues and use them as a negative painting tool.

Facial tissues are absorbent and leave a softer-edged impression. Use gentle pressing and twisting, or a dabbing motion.

If you try to scrub with a facial tissue, most will fall apart and soil your washes.

Excellent for clouds, soft lighting effects, and puddle control as you paint.

You can use toilet paper but that’s gross and most brands fall to pieces or leave lint all over your painting. Good for blotting brushes (Zoltan Szabo), leave it on the roll though.
