Watercolor Rainbow Process Art

Oh my goodness! It has been a hot minute since my last blog post! I am thrilled to be back in this space. It feels so good to not only make art with the kiddos again but to write! Writing, like art, is another creative process that gets me jazzed. Between these two expressive forms, I'm living my best Fri-Yay life. I digress. :) Let's talk process art and rainbows! Read on for more tips and tricks to achieve this fun and beautiful art!


Thick Cardstock

Basic Watercolor Set (single row)

Small Squeeze Bottle


1. Fill your squeeze bottle with water. Saturate the watercolor set fully. TIP: You want the colors to "loosen" up. Use the blunt end of a paintbrush to move the water and paint around. This

will help the paint absorb the water more effectively.

2. Lay your cardstock on the table while your paints are hydrating. TIP: Use painter's tape around all 4 sides to create a frame for your picture.

3. Once the watercolor paints have become soft, add a little bit more water to each color on the set.
