Default How does Lana do her awesome coloring around images?

I'm just admiring Lana's awesome work, esp looking at Toucan Of My Love and what she does with coloring that. Does she use a stipple brush to color around the edges? I just love that effect and wanted to know for sure!!! Thanks Lana, and EVERYONE, for all you do to inspire us all!

Default Gamsol and Stumps

Who's Lana? Just kidding! Okay, I know that is getting old!

I use stumps:

http://www.misterart.com/store/view/...ing-Stumps.htm

with Gamsol:

http://www.misterart.com/store/view....7257&store=001

I did not order my Gamsol or stumps from this company, but I thought I would show you a visual!

I have a small bottle of gamsol that I purchased at a Stamping Expo that has a dauber top. I then just press the stump to the top of the dauber and it soaks up the Gamsol. I color with regular (non watercolor) Crayola pencils and then blend that in with the stump of gamsol. Prismacolor pencils also work. Not all colored pencils will work.

It's really quite fun and I love the soft effect! I just scribble away on the toucan and then blend it all in with the stump that has Gamsol on it!

Hope that helps! And thank you so much for the compliments!

Thank you Debbie. Yep, I have two packs of Crayola 50ct. Works great! I'm no expert on this, but it works for me!

This technique also works with SU! Pure Color Pencils!! Beautiful results. I saw it at a "regional type" gathering and immediately went out and bought the supplies. You can get the blending stumps at a local craft store also - they are generally found by the painting (oil painting) supplies. Gamsol is an odorless mineral spirit that will blend any oil-based pencil. Happy Blending!!

Whenever I read that you use "stumps" with this technique all I can think of is the Seinfeld episode where Elaine sells muffin tops and can't find a way to get rid of the muffin stumps!

Well Stumps is the common name...you're referring to them by their "real" name......POIKY things....

Pine calls 'em "stumpage" ~ which just makes me giggle!

This is how I scribble my Toucan with the colored pencil before I take the Stump and Gamsol to it!

What boggles my mind is that I thought they were little jousting sticks to ward off DH's when you are in the middle of a progect! Now I need to get stumpy with it!

Lana...that is your name, isn't it?....

ROFL

Anyway, Lana, where did you get the Gamsol with the dauber top? I WANT IT! I am such a klutz! If I were to buy the Gamsol in a tin or in a jar...I will spill it everywhere -- guanranteed!

I know that you were at a convention and purchased it...but...do you have any idea where the vendor was from? I am a guaranteed klutz and will not be able to use that gamsol without some type of protective stuff!

Thanks...either way -- you are a peach!

"Colorin' & Stumpin'"! Sounds like a new Lana-technique is born!

Sue, shall we all just carpool to the "good" art store! I can be ready in half an hour!

So if we butt stamp a large background design before coloring, is the technique called Rump and Stump?
