Add 3 drops of dye re-inker into 10 drops of water in a small container.

Step 3
Brush clear water across the watercolor paper to wet the surface evenly

Step 4
Dab various colors of ink onto the watercolor paper, making sure to cover the paper so there is no white showing. Let the watercolor paper dry completely.

NOTE: To hurry up the process use a heat gun

Step 5
Cut acetate with various sizes of circle dies to create a stencil.

Step 6
Using a sponge dauber, white craft ink, and the stencil, color in circles all over the watercolor paper, overlapping some. Use the sponge dauber to fill in any blank spaces.
