Step 1. Add blending solution to the waterproof panel in a vertical line along the edge of the panel.

Step 2: Add your chosen ink color to the blending solution and use your blow dryer to move the ink into the blending solution until dry.

Step 3: Add more blending solution to the edge of the dried color and use your blow dryer to move the blending solution in and out of the dried ink to create a fade.

Step 4: Add blending solution to the dried ink and then add your next color, repeating this process until you’ve added all the colors from the rainbow.

Step 5: Use your mister bottle to gently mist over parts of your piece to create texture. Do not spray the mister too close to your piece and you can use your hand or another piece of paper as a guide.
