How to make a splash with ink and water
With an absorbent natural hair paintbrush, paint a design on your watercolour paper using only water. Make sure your lines are very wet and interconnected.
With the eyedropper provided in the cap of the Hydrus ink bottle, gently drop ink onto the wet areas of your drawing, one drop at a time.
Watch the ink travel along the water lines to fill in your painting! Leave your drawing on a level surface until it is completely dry.
