Experimenting with Brusho.

Brusho is a powder paint, that when mixed with water and sprayed using a bottle with a spray head on top, over a piece of paper, creates these amazing wet in wet style images. Different colours of Brusho can be mixed together to get more accurate colours – just like watercolour.

I was introduced to this medium by my friend and wanted to try it as I love the free flowing effect wet in wet watercolour gives you, so I wanted to see how it would look with Brusho. One thing I didn’t realise before starting my experiments was you could adjust the spray pressure on the head to get different effects. If you have the pressure really low like I had, sometimes the Brusho just drips out creating really dark horrible blobs on the paper which I don’t like.

With Brusho, just like watercolours, you want to choose colours that when merged together create a colour that compliments the other two.

This is an example of the low-pressure nozzle, where the Brusho has just dripped out onto the paper creating a really wet bold patch, that I don’t particularly like.

This is my favourite experiment as blue, yellow and the blended green work nicely together. With the right colours, I think you could make Brusho look like the juices from the freshly squeezed fruits in the cordial.
