I just couldn’t stop playing around with this weeks challenge. I really wanted to try another of the new techniques that I learned at Tangle U. Molly brought us a “gift” as she called it, from Maria and Rick. She showed us how to work on the black tiles using a “wash” of Zenstone on top first. You can see Maria using it in her work here. The first one is from my time at Tangle U and uses a black micron on top of the ghosting of Zenstone. Of course I couldn’t leave well enough alone…. I had to many of those, what ifs, running around in my head. My what would happen, for this one was, to add some colored pencil to it also. I used the Irojiten colored pencils from Tombow for the colored parts.
Here was my next experiment using this technique, and the, i am the diva challenge for this week. I ghosted the tile first and this time used a Sakura glaze pen, which gives a very shiny black line. I also used a silver Uniball pen, and both gold and bronze colored Slicci pens for accents. The shading added here and there was done with Caran d’Ache supracolor II soft colored pencils. I love how this one turned out. It reminds me of a bunch of pulley systems.
Thank you all for your lovely comments!
Here is to a great rest of the week, Happy Hump Day!
