Maybe you’re asking, Julie, what is Pixie Paint. Well, it’s powdered watercolor pigment. Each color has multiple hues of pigment in the bottle, so when you sprinkle it on a wet surface, you get a lot of color variety. However, when you add it directly to the barrel of a water-brush, you get a mix of all the colors. For the above tag, I used the dark blue (Harbor).
Other Things You’ll Need for this Project:
- A watercolor tag or paper to paint on
- A water-brush
- Gold Thread
You can watch this little video of me doing the lettering, but it’s not the best quality. Just practice, take it slowly and try to relax. I did a few trial runs on a scrap piece of paper to work out the design first and then used that as a visual reference while free-handing the tag.
Then just stitch it up and tape off the loose ends on the backside of the tag.
