Grey Sweater


Ink-painting a current project, enlivening my old grey cotton cardigan with some bright floral  embroidery.

I started by mending a rip and then got carried away!  The embroidery goes all around the neck of the sweater, small flowers.

I LOVE grey inks!!

Image created using Robert Oster inks.
The grey is a favorite, Australian Opal Grey Signature Ink, which lives in my Oyster Chesapeake pen, right.

I’m not happy with the embroidered areas of the image above.  The button is watercolor; how do I paint a shiny shell button in inks?

I purchase special packs of special offerings through Robert Oster’s website, and buy single bottles of his inks from Jetpens or PenChalet.
