Now Playing: floating acrylics to colorize pen-and-ink
Topic: Some Backlog
One one of my trips to Pittsburgh for shared papercrafts classes one of the ladies taught us to 'float' acrylics on pen and ink drawings. We transfered the provided drawings onto watercolor paper using graphite paper and then used permanent black ink to trace over. After erasing the graphite we used thinned acrylics to apply color washes wet-in-wet.

In this case, we made a second image of part of the flower and mounted it 3D.
