    Jazza...let me just start by saying that this art piece is beautiful. It moved me in a way that I can’t describe. To be honest, I didn’t think you knew what you were doing. I doubted you but now I apologize 😳

    I havent seen many people use pebeo watercolors. I dont recommend them at all. I dont like the mixes and texture. Its just a pain to work with in my opinion. You could get better supplies for cheaper

    Just some tips for you:
    1. Never, ever, use printer paper!! Always use watercolor paper or mixed media paper. If you don’t, the paper will be wavy and crumple. You can see at the top of Jazza’s paper it is wavy instead of a strait line when he did the swatches(testing the watercolor).
    2. (Optional) Don’t use cheap watercolor. I know good watercolor is quite expensive sometimes, but the quality is much better. For starters, you can use cheap watercolor just to see how you like it. If you think it’s for you, get better quality watercolor. (My beginning watercolor set was only $5, but since I got better, I have some better watercolor.
    Here are some good watercolor brands: Winsor and Newton, Sakura Koi, and Van Gogh watercolor.
    3. Be patient! Watercolor takes hard work and effort. But the good thing is, it dries pretty fast.
    4. Use waterproof pens! If you like to do line art (like me) then use waterproof pens. If you don’t, the watercolor will smear your pens and ruin your masterpiece. A good waterproof pen is the Sakura Micron PN. (The PN stands for plastic nib)
    5. Just keep trying! This kinda goes along with tip #3, but it is important. You can and WILL get better no matter what.

    I hope you found these tips helpful!!
    Also, I know Jazza won’t read this because I made this almost a year after he made his video 😢.
    I know this is a super long comment and you probably didn’t read it all, but if you did, I appreciate it!

    "Uhhh Jazza they are called Aquarell Colors and its actually its own art form please see that you are not referring to them as simple watercolors in the future!" Duhhhhh^^ nah just kidding in the principle they are really similar but there is a lot of depth in the subject because they have way more uses than regular water colors just my 2 cents nice video btw and have a nice day ;)

  • PinkHelation

    It's actually kinda heartening to see Jazza making the same mistakes in watercolor that I make but still ending up with something beautiful because his fundamental understanding of art is so strong. If Jazza can struggle with bleeding and dark edges and pull through with something to be proud of so can I.

    Honestly, don't ever underestimate dollar store paint lol.
    I remember that when I was in art class in high school, most of my classmates ordered these expensive watercolours that my school provided. I didn't order any because I didn't want to pay the expensive price for it. They were all like, "You didn't order any?" and jokingly mocked me when I told them I was just gonna buy dollarstore watercolour paints.
    And as I said, I ended up using the dollarstore watercolours (A similar one of the rectangular box that Jazza has), for our watercolour assignment.
    When we got our marks back, I found that I aced it. My mark was 100% and I scored higher than the majority of the class.
    They may have gotten nice, expensive paints, but did they have the talent? Naw lmao XD
