Okay, now on for some new techniques I was trying! I hope you like them! With the costs of art supplies now, and the fact that we have to have it all, and everyday there is something new coming out for all of us to go crazy with, I thought I would see if this new line of Ink from Liquitex would do the same job as all of those Glitter Mist Sprays, Tim Holtz's Spray Inks, etc.(Because let's face it, when ordering those sprays, you can't just get one color and they are expensive!) This technique works just as well as those expensive sprays...well at least they did for me and it's a heck of a lot cheaper. All you do is get yourself a little spray bottle (they sell them at Blicks for $1.19) I put about 12 drops of ink in the bottle and added about half water. You will get so much for your money and these inks go along way! Try mixing the colors...I haven't done that yet! I bet you can make all kinds of colors. The ink will last a long a long time and you don't need very much. I also tried using it directly out of the bottle for a drippy effect. I was very happy with the results. These little spray bottles are great for this process. They even come with a stick on the front so you can write the color on it. (www.blicks.com).
I have been working on some new Cloth & Clay Art Dolls and they are still in the "WORKS IN PROGRESS" Mode! This little girl is a custom order from a lady in Austria. She wanted a cloth and clay art doll, and requested that she have a big "X" for an Eye. Do you think I got that? LOL
Here are some that have moved on from the drying stage and now are getting sculpted with clay!
Just got my BIGGIE BOARD and BIGGIE PAPER! If you don't have one of these and are interested in just practicing your drawing, these are absolutely great. I got both at Blicks. They are having a great sale (well they always do)! LOL
I'm getting my supplies ready for Art School. I start January 18th...Can't wait!
My good friend Anita told me about this amazing new Art Book. If you love drawing and using colored pencils, this book is MUST HAVE! It's brilliant and is filled with amazing works, techniques and demos. Who knew you could use mineral spirits with colored pencils!
I hope everyone has a wonderful and creative weekend and remember to take time out of your day to create ART!
