I love lettering with Fall colours, and this week, I am going to use brown and Deep Yellow Kelly Creates Watercolor Inks.
As you know, there isn’t a brown ink in my sets, but you can easily make different brown hues by combining other inks. This warm brown which I like to call “caramel” is made by combining Orange and Blue Watercolor Inks.
You can also make brown by combining Yellow and Violet to make a sepia hue, or Poppy and Emerald to make a ‘chocolate’ hue.
And do you know which of my ink bottles is almost empty? Deep Yellow! This ink has a wonderful range and dilutes beautifully with water.

You can print this out on regular copy paper and paint directly on it or paint on a piece of tracing paper on top.

Can’t find my brand of watercolour inks? You can also use this Ecoline set too!
Another option for liquid watercolor inks is the Dr. Ph Martins ‘Hydrus’ Set 1 (there are 3 sets of different colours). And remember you need a palette with wells to use these liquid watercolours.
To practice painting letters freehand, use the heavyweight smooth Kelly Creates Grid Paper pad. (Never practice on blank paper).
To learn more about watercolor lettering, read my book The Art of Watercolor Lettering and use my workbooks, inks and supplies from the Kelly Creates AMAZON Storefront or from KellyCreatesStore.com.
