Watercolor Swatch Templates

You can download watercolor swatch templates created by Karen Elaine:

To use these templates, print them on regular printer paper (scaled to "Actual Size" so they are 5" x 7") and use a light box trace them onto one of our Niji Watercolor Paper 5" x 7" sheets with a pigment-based pen or marker (we love using our Detail Master Pigment Liner Pens!)
