RE: Black Watercolor - Carol

Long ago, I used the almost empty watercolor pans at my school and had the kids mix a dark neutral color with whatever colors were left. We used that leftover color mix for our Asian paintings and they turned out quite nicely. It was a great way to not throw away the last little bits in those watercolor pans.

        I just finished a Sumi-e project with my 5th graders using only black watercolor paint. I didn't have the ink - so we improvised. It worked out nicely. My students even wrote Haiku poems to go along with their paintings. :) Breanne
