Hiya Carole.........I've just found the comment you made regarding my pic "Sunny day at the shed", and I noticed that you asked me a question about whether I painted with ink in some of my pics, and I failed here goes.

I use a differing array of tools to draw/paint my ink pics. If I'm just doing a drawing, then I'll use a couple of fountain pens for the outlines and heavier tones, some very fine tipped micro pens for the lighter tones, and brushes for large areas of black. If I'm doing an ink wash pic, then I'll use a dip pen for the outlines and a brush for the washes.........ooh, and I use two different inks as well...........Noodler's Heart of Darkness when using the fountain pens, and Indian ink with the dip pen. You can't use Indian ink in fountain pens because it clogs up their workings, but I'd use it in fountain pens if I could, because they're much nicer to draw with than a dip pen. I like to use Indian ink when doing a wash pic because it's waterproof, which means that you can overpaint the outlines without fear of them bleeding into the washes........Noodler's ink is non waterproof, and most definitely does bleed.............Hope this was of some help. :o)
