Watercolor in 3D is a whole new way of approaching paint and paper! To make a 3D watercolor painting, first paint an abstract or realistic watercolor painting on paper, then make a photocopy of it. Decoupage the copy to a stretched canvas (foam core also works). Then cut the original painting into strips or other shapes and attach to the canvas in various configurations. Add embellishments, if desired, such as puffed paint, buttons, crystals, artificial or dried flowers, wooden objects, etc. to add even more depth. You’ll never look at a painting the same way again!
