Hey my lovelies. How are things? Good I hope.
Listen, I got asked to do some ‘inking’ techniques at a future workshop so I thought I’d have a little play and see what I could come up with.
When most of us think of inking, it’s usually Mr Holtz’ range that we turn to so, not wishing to break any moulds, I did too.
Here is what I came up with.
I was very happy with the result and hope that the workshop peeps will also like it as part of their day.
I used a range of stencils, distress inks, gesso and black pigment ink but to be honest, there really wasn’t much else involved, apart from fun ;)
Here’s a closer look.
As you will see I did also glaze the flowers but that was totally optional and not really about the technique so I may leave this bit out of the workshop.
I genuinely loved how the colours blended with each other and how the gesso acted as a resist. It creates such a surreal and engaging effect.
Hmm, ok, I’d best come up with some more ideas so that we have a bit of variety in the workshop.
Take care and I’ll see you again soon.
Oh, ps, do pop back tomorrow evening as I may have a little bit of excitement for you to be involved in.
