How to Create Bricks with Watercolor
On behalf of Tvlessson.com, I'm Sherie Tengbergen. In this clip, I'm going to show you how to make great bricks using something you might use to put your makeup on with, a makeup sponge and a piece of doweling. And I what I do first of all, is I’ll paint a nice background color. I’ll try to paint something a little bit lighter than the bricks that I want to create. So, very quickly with the round brush, I'm just going to paint my background for my brick wall.
I'm going to let that dry while I’ll tell you about how I do my bricks. I take a makeup sponge. This is a piece of dowelling, it’s a make up sponge and I've actually hot glued the make up sponge right onto the piece of dowelling. But, before I do that, I rip the piece of make sponge and look at the great texture you’ll get with that. And, I rip the back part so that I can actually glue it down on the end of the end of the dowel’s tip.
And, to make it even look more rugged, I take my fingers and I pull out little pieces of this makeup sponge to make it have a little bit more texture. Now, if you don’t want to use a piece of dowelling, you can take this make up sponge, dip it in your pink color and press and release and press and release. And, you want kind of move that sponge a little bit and that will make bricks for you in that manner so you don’t necessarily have to put it on a piece of dowelling. But, a piece of dowelling makes it a little bit easier and the darker the colors you use, the more brick will show.
