I fixed the misspelling of Dickinson's name, just in case you noticed it before. ;p (very embarassing)

I've just finished translating the little pamphlet that comes with the Etegami starter kit , and though it doesn't say anything that...
Your work is sooooo much fun! Love this cricket-- such lovely lines!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Krista! It was just pointed out to me that I misspelled Dickinson. I'll have to see if that can be fixed.... (I'm mortified)ReplyDelete
How did you make those interesting ink lines? With an eyedropper? The cricket is very compelling!ReplyDelete
@Linda, the blotches form as a natural interaction between the bamboo pen and the rough washi cards I use.ReplyDelete
Friction causes the pen to stick every once in a while and ink pools in that place. My washi cards have high "bleeding" quality, so both the sumi ink and gansai paints quickly spread through the paper as soon as they make contact with it.
I discussed this bleeding quality (nijimi) in my July 29 post about buying materials online.
Hi Debbie, hope no crickets were harmed in the making and editing of this etegami LOL. CaroleReplyDelete
