I am always looking for new, cool techniques in my crafting. When the Ken Oliver Colorburst Powders first brust onto the scene, it was honestly one of the coolest products I had seen in a long time. Being able to create a watercolor look with minimal effort makes me so happy. Check out this blog info from Ken Oliver's blog showing how to make a weathered wood look with your Colorburst Powders.
The technique is "faux weathered wood" with Color Burst. It's a great watercolor technique that instantly make you look like an accomplished water colorist.
All you need is some watercolor paper, Color Burst ( I used Burnt Umber, Cerulean Blue, and Lamp Black) and a fan brush!
A fan brush will let you create lines and streaky textures with Color Burst.
If you'd like to see how I did it, watch this video, I give step-by-step instructions and show you how to paint woodgrain with Color Burst and a fan brush.
