CREATE your Own Reference Book!
Developing an easy-to-use personal reference guide of your watercolors is always a good idea, and our 66 Dot Try-It Color Card is a great way to get started!
Cut the 66 Dot Try-It Color Card into 66 reference tabs so that each of the 66 watercolor dots are on their own rectangle.
Be sure to preserve the information (watercolor name, series number, sku number, and color information) printed on the paper for each color.
Using sheets of watercolor paper or pages in a Watercolor Journal, staple each reference rectangle onto a page.
In our example, we used 8.5" x 11 sheets and punched holes so that they could be inserted into a binder later.
Dip your brush into water, then onto the watercolor dot on the stapled Reference rectangle.
Take up the pigment and paint it out on your Reference Book page.
Brush out the released pigment on the paper, experimenting with pigment density and transparency/granulation.
You can then write in notes about the color, such as Tips and Tricks about Wet onto Wet/Dry Paper Techniques.
Create Mixing References too - combinations that you want to remember and use later.

Some of my dots had fallen off into tiny pieces. Some didn't have much paint on to use.
A fantastic and very cost effective way to experience the quality and color pallet of the brand. I very much enjoyed “playing” with this and will be purchasing some colors.
