This is one of the notes I put in my sketchbook immediately after throwing back the blanket. It is Dye-Na-Flo paint over olive green oil pastel.
My camera will not focus on white (go figure) so I had to put a small paper box Marcella made me on the paper. This is freezer paper with a small square of white cotton ironed on so I could mark on it.
Markel paint sticks. Laura Kemshall once said, don't save these for some special occasion because they will dry out over time. Even in the plastic bag these are hardening after about 4 years.
Markel on the left and an oil pastel on the right
With Dye-Na-Flow wet (above) and dry (below). I will heat set both after 3 days
Experiments till to come are getting a rollon deodorant from the dollar store,cleaning it out and adding paint to see if I can write with a rollon and making a thermofax screen with DNA. Don't you love dreaming?
