Painted Paper Clay

 I finally painted my little #paperclay #embellishments and started a few more. I'm not going to stiop until I use up my package of @creativepaperclay. These will be used on top of a few books and boxes I am making. In photo no.2 I have already covered a metal black box that a fountain pen came in. There are still many steps until finished.

First Try at Paper Clay

My friend, Kathy Pzrekopp introduced me to paper clay last week. She gave a few friends a demo on zoom and taught us how to make the heart on the left. I mad a few other things including some useing rubber stamps I had carved.

These are my first projects and tests for applying the black paint.

This is our "text book" for using Creative Paper Clay.

USK Challenge

 The USK Talks Challenge this week is to draw a map of the places you have sketched at. This is my contribution. There were many sketches of San Diego so I decided to make a smaller map and draw Poway.

Value Studies Time Lapse

This is a 1:50 minute time lapse Lydeo. 
 These sketches were created during a virtual meetup with SFSketchers. The focus was on Value Studies. We drew 1-minute thumbnails then went on to two 5 minute poses, two 8 minute poses, and one 10 minute pose. I used Gray Pitt Brush Markers, Stabilo Pencils in black, brown, and graphite color, and ended with a Sharpie Waterbased Marker.
