I came up with a new mark making idea with these roller ball bottles.
I had received a bottle of cuticle oil for Christmas in a bottle with a stainless steel roller ball tip and whilst I was using it I suddenly had a lightbulb moment. I thought these bottles would be a great way of rolling paint. So, I found some empty refillable bottles on Amazon, filled one up with acrylic paint and gave it a try. And as you can see it worked a treat.
I filled the bottles with acrylic paint.
I used High Flow acrylic for one and Fluid Acrylic for the other but watered down so that it would flow better.
I have decided it is probably best to store them upside down so that the paint doesn’t dry out on the roller ball which may make it difficult to roll.
I have added the Amazon links for the bottles on my Favourite Art Supplies page Tools & Equipment
I love it when I come up with a new mark making idea. I hope you like it. Give it a go and let me know what you think.
