    Hi, friends…

    I’ve had to take a few years away from watercolor, but I’m trying now to get back into it. When I was more active, I used to watch a lot of YouTube videos on watercolor techniques, and I sort of remember one where you can use water to expose a white edge. But I can’t remember how to do this, or where to look for advice. If you can point me in the right direction, I would very much appreciate it. Thanks!

    • Do you mean lifting? Using a damp brush to lift color away from a dry edge. I like a small flat for this.

      • Thanks, JA! Lifting is probably what I need to do, but I believe I was thinking about a technique using clear water but was remembering it backwards. The technique I believe, uses clear water to move color to the edge, rather than lightening the edge. So… back to the drawing board. Thanks again.
