Me either, in fact I must have thrown the bottle of gamsol away. I didn't see it when I was re-arranging in my studio yesterday. I do still have my tortillions and I played around with baby oil a bit yesterday. It just feels weird to me. I guess because I have been using the colorless blender pencil for years. Recently I was looking at others' work using gamsol and the effect is kind of light, or pastel. I like it and began thinking I needed to change. Some very talented friends on Oriental Stamp Art helped me to see it is a style difference not a right or wrong type of thing. My pencil work is very vibrant, with deep rich colors and I guess that reflects my personality. My friends told me they like my pencil work and not to try and change to fit someone else's style. One pointed out that art is very individual and all about interpretation. I can't say it like she did, but I found it very profound. I have no idea how I got on this topic! lol
