Day 11 revisits my new interest in pens: specifically dip pens and writing with paint. I’ve been meaning to see if using acrylic paint as an ink is as successful as using watercolours – as I wrote about in that post.
I picked a nice bright Christmas red, and got started. I had a couple of false starts while I tried to work out the right consistency..
…but I got there in the end.
After that I got to doodling.
I still need to work on the amount of ink/paint I’m loading on to the nib – you can see a few blobs here and there. I plan on redoing that gift Zentangle next year, to see how my skills have improved.
