Student Inks and Textures

by Sarah

Starting by texturing the watercolor paper with thick gesso and then a bit of salt dropped in places, letting it dry and then painting loosely with inks. Here’s some more of the playful landscapes created by the students in the workshop last weekend.

Some ink blot fun here!  Can you see Penny’s name written in pink?  Write your name on one side of a fold with an ink dropper, fold over and press. . .

  1. You have such a talented group of students.

    Have you used or heard of a paper called TerraSkin? It’s made in Canada and is “green”. Ann at All Things Paper featured it earlier this week.
