Default How do you use the reinkers for watercoloring?

I keep seeing examples of this in the gallery but I can't find any info about how you use the reinkers with the aquapainter. It's probably right in front of me, but I can't see it. Help, please!! TIA!

Put a drop or two into the lid of the same color pad or onto a CD and simply pick up the color with your brush - Voila!

You can also use a foam plate or a plastic stamp case.

I also keep a little bit of water handy so that I can create layers of color. Here are some of my other secrets ( ): http://seitlerstamps.blogspot.com/20...g-secrets

You can also get plastic palettes in art stores or fine art departments of places like Michael's. They have round ones with little wells that contain each color a little better.

You don't even need to use your reinker for this - if you are using SU pads - just sqeeze the lid of the pad pad gently onto the pad while your inkpad is closed - when you open the pad there's a pool of color on the lid - use a wet paintbrush to pick up the color and watercolor your art! Use more water for lighter color, less water for more intense color. I love watercoloring this way.
