Magic of a Secret Ingredient

Before I got into #fingerpainting my first love was #charcoal drawing, I love the feel of it in my hands and the crackle as it glides across the paper. The fact that I could draw using my fingers was a plus!


Then in college I watched my roommate, Tat do the most incredible things with inks and bleach. The effects were phenomenal! The burn of #bleach through the #ink, wow!


The painting below was one where I used this 'magic ingredient' on the mane. Still one of my favorites!


Experimenting painting with sticks and blades one night and nothing was moving fast enough! Dipped my #hands in the pot of ink and 18 years later still have ink in my #finger nails and loving it!! :-D
