Dampen entire bow tie with water. Do not soak.
In a small bowl, mix two parts paint and one part water to thin the paint.
Dip the medium watercolor brush into the paint and lightly brush a small section of bow tie. Let paint bleed into areas naturally. (Tip: Start with less paint when using a watercolor technique. You can always add more color if needed.)
Dip brush into second color and randomly brush paint into a different area allowing the two colors to mix a little.
Add color as desired. Let dry completely.
