Video of Balloon Watercolor | Kuretake Gansai Tambi

Today's card process video features Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. I traced a balloon die with a watercolor pencil to make this design really quick. Using the watercolor pencil was a first for me and I bet I will use that trick in the future. The color was light enough and completely faded away.

I used several primary colors from the watercolor palette and created slight washes of color to show that the balloons were slightly transparent. I also inked the balloons after it was dry and hand drew on the bows and string details to each  one. I used a Black Gelly roll pen to add different texture to the piece. The Gelly Roll pen adds a shine to the strings and bows. Then I used the white watercolor that is in the Kuretake Gansai Tambi palette and added the half moon highlights. That did take several layers to achieve the opaqueness that I wanted. 


For the background I did a light wash of blue and then layered on more paint to create the darker areas. I was thinking of the camouflage pattern, I think it makes for a nice stylized sky design. Then I cut a piece of white fun foam with the celebrate die and adhered that to the red balloon. Minimal supplies!
