Select your first color, pastels work great. There are two ways to create your watercolor. One being very careful using the Watercolor Build Up, using this brush you have to make sure to use quick strokes in places for light color. The other way, in which I used, is using the Round Watercolor brush. I completely fill in the select space, choose my next color, a slightly lighter color and make quick strokes through the selected area. You can you more than two colors, customized to your choice. Creating Watercolor Text
