carolxann#bingata mini-clip series #3: Kuma-dori, application of gradient contrast
There are some rules - a kind of Japanese color theory, if you will - about what colors are allowed to be applied on top of each other. In this portion a gradient color is applied: they can be of the same color family (like with this cat), or a total contrast. Care needs to be taken when applying to ensure a smooth gradient; the brush type helps, but having good technique is essential to make it look pretty 😍
After everything dries, the rice paste will be washed off so the excess color will rinse away - leaving you with a clean image!
