Hahnemühle Post Cards, Posies

It is such fun to try handmade paints from JazperStardust and PfeifferArt.
I played with them in posies on Hahnemühle post cards


I use masking for ease, and to get the white dots at the end…
Jazper’s Lapis up against DS Quinophthalone Yellow as a base.

JazperStardust‘s Lapis, Goldfish, Sunray, and Coral star with other colors mixed in…
I had problems so removed a bit of color — Jazper’s paints can go on thick and rich — and maybe a bit too rich so I need to get used to more pigment than a Daniel Smith paint.
I simply went in with a damp paper towel, and was fine with the slight impressions it left — I like texture!  Still not quite happy, I took a cotton swab and dabbed on DS Sap Green.
Once the masking was removed, I was happy!


PfeifferArt‘s Lavender-Blue played nicely with Jazper’s Lapis and Goldfish.
Working with handmade paints takes getting used to the differences…
More pigments usually, meaning you have to do less of a dip
into the wet paint to get a wash going.

The heavy texture of the Hahnemühle Post Cards adds to the variation!.
