Each month, Jane “Danger” Davenport presents a new Art Lesson that focuses on specific mixed-media art supplies, and how to use them to create your own work. One of the perks of the Art Lessons is that each is embedded with a video starring the lively and entertaining “Danger” herself as she demonstrates her techniques. If you’ve never used daubers to create patterns in your art (or if you already love incorporating their flashy colors), you’ll want to download Art Lesson 10 for Jane’s helpful tips and inspiring art.

“Daubers From Hero Arts® and Dye-Na-Flow® from Jaquard® (sometimes referred to as Dyna’s or DNF) are both versatile, dye-based liquids,” Jane explains. “I like to think of them as permanent watercolors. This means that although they look and behave similar to traditional watercolor paints, once dry they don’t shift or lift if other liquid colorants are placed on top of them. When you place watercolor paint over a dry watercolor layer, it reactivates the previous layers and the colors mix. The effects are lovely, but layering Dye-Na-Flow and Daubers gives you another element of expression in your artwork.”
In Art Lesson 10, you’ll see how to mix this media, as well as how to keep the colors separate. Jane shares several examples of her final art, and tells you everything you need to know about Daubers and Dye-Na-Flow inks. Click here to download this lesson today.
Jane also makes a cameo appearance in this fun video that the Cloth Paper Scissors team created on taking the fear out of drawing faces. Watch it, and be inspired!
