We love liquid watercolors in this house. They're vibrant, versatile, and fun to use. We've used them for so many different kinds of projects ranging from coffee filter art (and coffee filter butterflies), shaving cream painting, regular watercolor painting, marbling with oil, shaving cream marbling, and probably some others I don't remember at the moment.
Maia asked to use the liquid watercolors again recently and I decided to try them undiluted for once. Usually I dilute them about half and half with water, which works well and makes the watercolor bottle last a looong time. However, I wanted to see what they were like full strength this time so just gave them to her as is.
In the photo above, she has squirted the watercolors on cardstock then dragged a comb through the paint.
The undiluted watercolors are so bright and vibrant and wonderful!
I'll still use the liquid watercolors diluted sometimes, but now that I know how wonderful they are undiluted I'll remember to use them this way more often.
Although they do tone down a bit when dry…
Liquid watercolors are definitely a staple in our house!
