ALL NEW

  
BRUSHO Crystals Colours

I had looked at other available powders or crystals and found them too messy.  BRUSHO crystals are different and coloring becomes an easy to control process.

Brusho Crystal Colours are amazingly versatile watercolor ink crystals that can be used in a myriad of different ways. Incredibly vivid, vibrant, and brilliant, they open up a world of possibilities for painters, mixed media artists, and crafters of every level, from student to professional.

Totally intermixable, Brusho Crystal Colours can be used on paper, canvas, or even wood. Sprinkle them directly on a wet substrate and watch intriguing organic patterns appear almost like magic. Or sprinkle Brusho Colours on a wet brush, painting knife, or texture tool to create a variety of gorgeous effects. You can dissolve them in water and apply them with a spray bottle, or add them to wax paste or gel mediums for body. 


These are available in sets or individual colors.
