The Ombre technique is simple, but it does take courage! It requires the plunge of the brush into each color with gusto! No need to wash the brush in between, just fade from one color to another, repeating that pattern about 3 times up and down the piece. The key is a brush full of paint and the absence of fear as you let the colors blend into one another. A perfect final touch is the flick of our stencil brushes creating a freckled finish. The colors used here fade from Polar Bear, to Lime Light, to Hint-o-Mint, to Blue Ice. The speckles were done in Blue-by-You. We hope you enjoyed our Technique Tuesday, and would love to see you try it for yourself!

We look forward to seeing you!

Beach weather is pushing it’s way into the air! Can you feel it? Can you hear it calling you to the surf and sand…to blue skies and white gulls sailing overhead? If you are a beach lover, this wall-hanging flip-flop will be a good reminder to enjoy this summer with the ones you love. One way to do that is at the beach, the other way is getting creative with us here at You Do the Dishes! Come cool off with an Italian Soda and enjoy the daily relaxing vibe of our studio.
