Sharpie Watercolor

I've been wanting to try these for awhile and now I finally got around to it! I watched a few tutorials and it seems that most people scribble the sharpie in a dappen dish, then dip the paintbrush in rubbing alcohol and mix. But, I didn't want to ruin my only dappen dish so I used a ziploc bag, which worked out great!

As a base, I used wet n wild's white creme. It took about 3 - 4 coats to be completely opaque, so I would probably try finding an easier white to work with. I just bought this because whites and blacks are frequently used so I tend to go cheap on them (this was $0.99). For the sharpies, I used a neon pink, neon green, and a blue that is by BIC, not Sharpie. I then scribble on my ziploc bag, dipped a brush in rubbing alcohol, swirled it around, and gently painted/dabbed on each color until the mixed a little. The was the end result! The remind me of painted easter eggs and I've had them on for like 5 days now, which is a lot for someone who changes manis so often. I plan on stamping over it.
