I've been experimenting with different materials for under paintings in my pastel paintings. I read a recent article where the artist used silver gouache as an under painting to add sparkle to their painting. I stopped at one of the craft stores today to see if they had some, but their gouache selection was small. So I looked in their clearance section and found Liquitex Acrylic Ink for just over $2 a bottle. I purchased the black and the silver, thinking these would be just the thing instead of the gouache!
Once I tried these two inks on the following painting, I really liked them and decided to run back over to the craft store to get all the other colors in clearance!
