When I first began sharing my massive watercolor mixing charts online, so many of you reached out to me and asked for instructions. I was happy to oblige and have released an in-depth, 19-page Scratchmade Guide to Watercolor Mixing Charts.
The guide contains complete instructions for creating a mega watercolor mixing chart like the one featured above. This chart is about 20x20-inches, hangs beside my desk, and is a constant and reliable reference.
The guide also includes detailed instructions for creating a stair chart like the one I’ve previously shared. Along with this information, the guide contains additional tips and ideas for creating, using, and evaluating mixing charts along with 6 blank mixing chart printables, but more about those below.
The directions contained in this guide are not only extremely useful for creating a watercolor chart, but they can also be used to create a color mixing chart for any medium—gouache, acrylic, oil, etc.
Free Watercolor Chart Printables
Along with the release of my Mixing Chart Guide, I’ve reformatted and republished my blank mixing charts. These are super handy for creating a mixing chart notebook or exploring a limited number of mixes. You are welcome to download the six blank mixing chart printables at my tutorial on creating a stair or stepped mixing chart.
These are the same 6 charts that are also available within the guide, so if you’re a fairly advanced painter—in other words, you already know how to create a square and a stair watercolor mixing chart and desire no additional tips or information—please enjoy this free resource.
However, if you would prefer printed instructions along with much more information on creating and using a variety of watercolor mixing charts, my Scratchmade Guide may certainly help. Continue reading to see what the Scratchmade Guide to Watercolor Mixing Charts contains.
