Snow Egret Demo with Moisture Control Tips
Ling Chi offers this fun and simple Snowy Egret demonstration and mini lesson.
Make sure you pay close attention as she offers a couple secret moisture control tricks. The first is to make a glue water solution by taking some water soluble glue like Liberty Glue and adding some water to make a glue water. When you are doing strokes that require precise moisture control like bird beaks or legs, you load glue water onto your brush rather than water. The glue water will make the strokes much less likely to bleed.
The second trick is to add Dr. Martin's Bleed Proof White on the tip of the white strokes used for the egret's head, body, and feathers.
Follow along with Ling Chi as she shows you how paint confidently on colored single shuen (xuan) papers like our Khaki Shuen.
