Instructions for Watercolor Painted Tote Bag:
Tip: For the message on the tote, use the Marvy® Uchida Fabric Marker to write it and then thicken the down strokes to mimic brush lettering. You can use a pencil to write this out first and go over with the marker if you desire.
Place a piece of cardboard inside your canvas tote bag in order to keep the paints from bleeding through.
Mix your Fabri Ink and water using 15 drops of ink in your Color In Water In Brushes.
Paint your flowers on your tote bag. Allow ink to dry in between layered flowers in order to prevent bleeding.
Allow the painted flowers to dry completely.
Using a black Marvy® Uchida Fabric Marker, add details to the flowers.
