New Name, Same Location

Yachats Storm                    Oil/Cold Wax/Collage on Arches Oil Paper

I've changed the name of this blog to include readers of Wabi-Sabi Painting with Cold Wax as well as readers of my previous book. I hope you will feel free to post questions about materials, processes, etc. and also to share your own inspiration and techniques. 

On my website homepage you can open a page of oil and cold wax resource information. 

A huge thank you to all of you who have read my books and here's hoping for further interesting dialogue!

Where to Find Re-inkers Now?

Golden Field        Reinker, acrylic glaze, acrylic paint on panel


Now that my book, Wabi-Sabi Art Workshop, has been out a couple of years, lots of people have discovered the joy of painting with dye re-inkers and acrylic glaze medium. In the book I use and recommend Ranger Adirondack reinkers which were my mainstay. Now we discover, Ranger has stopped making this line! Well, I initially panicked as did some of you. 

Never fear, however. Ranger makes another line called "Archival Inks" which are also dye reinkers and also come in rich colors. You can find them on the Ranger site and also get them through Amazon. Whew!

Let me know how these inks work for you!
