Make Your Colors Sing – Dylusions & Derwent ArtBars Tutorial

Give me new paint media and I vanish into my studio going crazy – I just can’t help it!

Recently I purchased some awesome Dylusions Ink Sprays – and somehow some Dylusions Stencils and Stamps also fell into that basket…ooops ;) Love the products! As you know I have been playing with spray paints for many years ….and so getting some new spray paints makes me just giddy with excitement to try them with all kinds of other media and find fun new techniques. Well….so it was only a matter of time, that after I figured out the scoop about those spray inks and how they react, to try them with Derwent ArtBars (if you missed my post about them – here you go)…another awesome new paint media in my possession. OHHHH MMMMYYYY DEAR!!!!

Dylusions Ink Sprays and the Derwent ArtBars are amazing each by themselves but put together….they make the colors SING :) A complete Supply List of what I used can be found below

Here is the finished page

What have you played with (art product)  recently?

Have a gorgeous day!

    I actually have most of these products. Sadly I don’t have any Art Bars yet. I do have some of the Inktense and am going to use them instead. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your oh so easy to follow tutorial. If it weren’t for generous artists like you, I’d still be drawing stick figures!!! (((HUGS)))

    Ok, yesterday, I’d thought: I REALLY want some Artbars. (have the sprays, stencils, stamps)
    Decided to wait, not scurry off to whichever store ..
    Now? Now???? Having watched this video, I HAVE to have Artbars – NOW!! Yep, cancelled my haircut so I’d have time to try Michael’s and/or Hobby Lobby. (art is always more important than hair! lol)
    Thank you for the video – LOVE it!!

    Great, inspiring video! Only one downside to it – now I NEED to get some Dylusion sprays and stensils and stamps! :D

    To be honest I often use just one product and don’t think to mix the techniques/products. But last night in my art journal I played with white gesso, stamp and inks, washi tape, stencils and how to put things on the page when I can’t wait for them to dry (and how that changes things up). LOL

      Hi Mila – I couldn’t find a shop in spain- but there is a distributor- so probably bigger art stores store it. You can order them for example in Dyan’s Store Art From the Heart in the UK – she ships to the mainland of Europe too and I ordered there and loved the service! http://shop.afth.co.uk/derwent-464-c.asp – I hope that helps
      Hugs

    Gorgeous page, Nat! Love the tute… you even pick cool music. I’m loving the sprays too and I fear I may *need* to ArtBars.
