BLUE PHROG IN A BLENDER
Chunky, just the way I like it best. Sometimes you need something with a little more substance than a smoothie.
While I love smooth, flowy inks, I also really enjoy the challenge of trying to create texture in some in pieces. I find one of the easiest ways to do this is by starting with a base of diluted inks, coming in with gold or brass metallics, then adding Jacquard Blanco Blanco. Then it's just a matter of working layers over and over with full strength and diluted inks, and alcohol. I dont use any mechanical tools on pieces like this, as they can make it harder to control the textures, which you can manage better just by huffing and puffing like a wolf trying to blow the house down.
Towards the end, I use my own mix of alcohol and colurshift pigments, then the final touch is a bit of the dry pigments sprinkled on judiciously. .
Shame pictures never do pieces like this justice, as this baby GLOWS, and looks amazing from all angles. I am quite pleased with my morning's work. .
