Takin' it greasy...

Recently some of the members of the etegami Fun Club have been using a grease pencil to draw their cards. It acts as a kind of resist, the paint floating over it. Using a pencil makes drawing the image a lot more fluid and direct than the wobbly lines of the brushed on sumi ink.
I thought that I would try this method on a few different cards and the result is not too bad, satisfyingly direct and dark but it is only another weapon in the arsenal to achieve the "perfect" etegami.

  1. Hi.. you do some lovely work.. I had never saw cards like these before.. love them
    Thanks for stopping by my blog.. you asked whether I baked the rolls in the Turbo or not.. the rolls were baked in the Turbo but the loaf of bread was baked in my small convection oven.
    Have a blessed day
