steps to watercolor ink smoosh with stencils

  1. Apply watercolors directly to the stencil.
  2. Spray with additional water to get movement. The more water, the more loose and watery the result will be.
  3. Flip the stencil and apply to watercolor paper.
  4. For a more defined image, use more water in step 2 and/or press gently on the stencil for complete contact with the paper.
  5. Allow stencil to sit for as long as you like, then remove.
