Ink Drop Technique

The science of diffusion is a beautiful and fascinating thing. Watch a single drop of ink spread across a page to create a dynamic painting in seconds. This technique is mesmerizing and creates unique and unpredictable stains.

How to make a splash with ink and water

Step 1: 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.

 

Step 2: 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.

 

Step 3: 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.

You will need:

  • Hydrus watercolour ink
  • Natural hair paintbrush
  • Watercolour paper
  • Water
  • Hydrus watercolor ink
  • Natural hair paintbrush
