really love using liquid watercolor with the little ones in my school. It is so convenient and easy, especially when you are not needing to use a multitude of colors. Yesterday my 2nd graders were doing a watercolor/crayon wash with blue and I knew I did not have enough precious liquid water color to do the job. My options were limited: 1-only give them a small amount and hope it was enough, 2-water it down some more and dilute the color, or create a choice 3. Here is how I came up with choice #3! I always have those trays of watercolor where the little oval only has a little paint left in it but being the thrifty one, I just can't bear to toss them out until the last little bit of paint has been used. Hearing lamenting students: "But Mrs. H, the container is empty." I gathered up a couple of those almost but not quite empty ovals and dropped them down into a jar of warm water and SHAZAM liquid watercolor! And yes, it was great! The color was vibrant, it painted just like the stuff I had previous bought and you could not tell the difference!
