Yesterday I was a very lucky girl – I got something AMAZING in the post – Portfolios and Shakey Pens (aka Sharpie Poster Paint Pens).
Both of these are extremely hard to get hold of for UK Art Journallers I didn’t even know about them until I did a course at Art From the Heart with Dina Wakley. She introduced us to them and then kindly offered to ship them over for us. I was just a bit excited when they arrived!!!
Portfolios are water soluble oil pastels which means that they come in vivid colours; are great to smoosh and blend and also will act like water colours when wetted with a paint brush.
Poster paint pens will write over anything (just make sure the paint is dry – cos wet paint kills!!) The ink/ paint is wonderfully dense.
It does seem a bit mean to tell you all about them – lovely uk reader – when it’s so hard to get hold of them. Though I think I can probably hear squeals of excitement from across the country from the other workshop goers as they get their packages too! I just wanted to publicly express my gratitude. Thanks Dina.
