HOW TO USE BRUSHO

Cover the work surface to be used.

LIQUID BRUSHO

1. Standard Strength Brusho  -  For straightforward painting  or when used as a wash over design, add the powder to

568ml Cold Water.

2. Diluted Brusho  -  For a subtle shade, e.g. sky variations etc., add water to a small amount of standard strength

Brusho until the desired shade is achieved.

3. Concentrated Brusho - For extremely intensive, vibrant  colours, add Brusho to a small amount of water.

DRY POWDER BRUSHO

For best results, place Brusho in a clean pepper or spice drum. Use white paper.

1.  With a large brush, wet the paper thoroughly (adding a  small amount of washing-up liquid to the water often

assists diffusion).

2.  Shake Brusho on to the paper, either using a single colour or try mixing the colours. The Brusho will spread

across the paper, producing a superb effect for underwater scenes, volcanos, etc. Dry flat.

3. For a close grained effect, apply water to the paper with  a damp, not wet cloth, using a circular motion to avoid

paint following the lines of the brush strokes.

Painting

By varying the amount of dilution. Brusho can be mixed to any shade imaginable. The colours are all intermixable and

children are easily encouraged to experiment. Sponges or soft squirrel and sable brushes are best. The following are

suggestions for using Brusho as a painting medium. Experiments will lead to the discovery of other methods.

Used as an alternative to powder colour, Brusho is excellent as an all-purpose medium. The brilliance and even painting

of Brusho make it ideal for watercolour. If a few cellulose paste granules are added, the consistency

alters and it adheres better to the glossy surfaces of boxes than ordinary paint. This makes it very useful for infants

painting scrap-box models.

Ink & Wash

Brusho can be used to wash areas of a drawing in waterproof ink. Use ink and Brusho on wet paper for a

delicate and interesting effect.

Stencils

Use with a stencil brush, or spray with a diffuser.

Posters

For general colouring and particularly for lettering. Use pens or lettering brushes. Unusual posters may be made with

liquid wax. Paint the lettering and the design in wax, and cover with one or more washes of Brusho. Alternatively, use

the dry technique.

Maps & Diagrams

Because of its transparent quality, Brusho is ideal for use in Biology, Geography, etc., as it covers evenly without

obliterating lines and letters.

Brusho Transparencies

Materials required - Brusho (dry and liquid), white tissue or tracing paper, very soft brushes or sponges.

Technique. Paint Brusho directly on to the paper. (Wax may be applied first as a resist). Begin with pale colours,

gradually working up to the stronger ones. Sprinkle dry Brusho onto some wet areas. Dry flat and display on a

window in a black paper frame. Encouraging results willcome from experimenting with stencils, the addition of inks,etc.

Brusho and Bleach

(See picture on front of leaflet) Some amazing results can be achieved when using Brusho

with bleach. It is an excellent way of reproducing the intense brightness of stars, suns, fire, nebulae, water and wave

highlights.

1. Apply the bleach using a sponge for large areas of pictures or scenes or with fine brushes or mapping pens

for accurate or detailed work.

2.  For areas which need to be pure white, apply the bleach to your picture whilst it is still wet.

3. For areas which need to be slightly yellow/orange, apply the bleach after the painting is dried.

THIS TECHNIQUE IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR YOUNG CHILDREN

Dry flat.

4.  Sprinkle Brusho across the paper. Dry flat.
