Artist’s Toolkit ~ Gail Prpick

I am a fickle artist.  If you asked me what my favourite item in my art toolkit was last week, it would have been raw canvas.  This week I am on the alcohol ink band wagon.  The colours are vibrant and luminous but I find myself quite often toning them down.  It is interesting to just dab the ink on a ceramic tile or yupo paper and watch them move but to manipulate the ink is wonderful.  I do this by cutting into the ink on the paper or tile with a brush dipped in alcohol.  To protect my art, I spray it with a vanish.  I find Kamar by Krylon to work best.  Many vanishes will make the ink bleed and discolour.   Come and see me dabbing  on Monday, November 26, 2018.
