Mandala Magic: Exploring Graphite Watercolors and Textured Paste

Hey art enthusiasts! In my latest video, I dove into the world of creativity using Kuretake Graphite watercolors and textured graphite paste. I had a blast experimenting with a beautiful mandala stencil, weaving intricate designs over the graphite hues. I spilled the secrets on how to achieve depth and texture, taking you step-by-step through the process. From mixing the perfect palette to the satisfying moment when the mandala comes to life, this tutorial is all about letting loose and exploring the possibilities of graphite art. Join me on this chill artistic journey as we create something uniquely beautiful together!
