How to Paint Transparent Balloons

     Today I want to share how I make the balloons I paint look transparent. I used the Vera Lane Studio digistamp set Cheers. You can get it here.  I print the digistamps with a Canon printer on Canson watercolor paper that I trim down to 8 ½ x 11 inches.

The supplies I used are:

  • Tim Holtz distress inks
  • Pentel waterbrush
  • Sakura Gelli Roll pen
  • Canson Watercolor Paper
  • heat gun (because I’m impatient 😜)

You can watch the time lapse video of my process here on my YouTube channel.

Hope you enjoy!
