kaetlynableScritch, scritch, scritch❤❤❤....Dr.Ph.Martin's Black Star waterproof India Ink on Ampersand claybord.
- 22nevLooks dope!
- itwasblankThat's beautiful
- melissa_halley_artLove it!! 💙
- melissa_halley_artI had been experimenting with claybord with different inks I have (color) but was not happy with the results. With India Ink it works perfectly! 👍For my other work I prefer encausticbord over aquabord. Did you ever try encausticbord?
- shevaundohertyartist@melissa_halley_art I was given the encaustic board to try... such a temptingly smooth surface! I have yet to try it though.
- shevaundohertyartistLovely work... I wasn't mad about the Ampersand panels for watercolour. Forgiving, yes... but so absorbent. Your ink work makes me rethink!
- melissa_halley_artNice! Looking forward to see the results! In my opinion encausticbord acts just a bit more like paper when it comes to inks and pencils. @shevaundohertyartist
- artbytaniaOh I love ink!
- kaetlynableI haven't tried encausticbord yet, @melissa_halley_art. It sounds interesting! I do love aquabord for watercolor and claybord for my drawings in this style, because the ink scratches off so beautufully. What are the properties of encausticbord?
- kaetlynable@shevaundohertyartist, did you try aquabord for your watercolors? I don't like the way watercolor behaves on claybord, but I love them on aquabord! The color stays so rich and vibrant, and lifts so beautifully. I'll have to give encausticbord a try!
- melissa_halley_artEncaustic is also absorbent like aquabord but a bit more smooth. It works with water-based paints, pigmented inks, pencil and more. When you work with colored inks/ watercolor on claybord blotches of ink/ paint form which I don't like. With encausticbord that doesn't happen 😊 @kaetlynable @shevaundohertyartist
- shaneywattersartBeautiful patience! 😍
- kaetlynableOh, it sounds fantastic @melissa_halley_art! I agree--i don't like paint, or really any media other than India Ink, on claybord. Encaustic board sounds more versatile.
- the_fruit_hunterThat's insane!!
- kaetlynable@polanshek @22nev @itwasblank @northerntangles @modernbotanics @k.a.r.o.l.inka @shaneywatters @_solea_ @the_fruit_hunter Thank you all for your sweet words! I apologize for the bulk response---I'm woefully behind on my instagram correspondence! 🙈
