Re: My Swirl practice attempts
I put about a tablespoon of borax in a 10 litre bucket planning to do the swirl soon after. I didnt end up doing it for about 2 days. I know if you put it in then paint straight after, it doesnt work well, at least it didnt for me. I think 1/2 hour to 1 hour later is usual.
That was a pretty random what I did. I just put all 3 colours in in a sort of triangle, then mixed them around with a stick. You really dont need much at all, I had 10ml (I think) paints and the one i've used most (orange, has been used for 4 or 5) is just under half empty.
