How to create "running paint"


I am trying to create an effect of painting with "to much" paint on the brush. So that the paint will not follow the line, but start to "run down the canvas". The preferred effect that I am looking for is more of running watercolor or very thin oil paint.

Is it possible to create an effect like this without to much hassle ?

Re: How to create "running paint"

A very quick search on the internet led to literally hundreds of tutorials for what you are asking. Sadly, most of them seem to have the word blood in the title. The technique is readily adapted to paint. I've posted links to three just to give you an idea of what is available. Good luck.
