Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
Q: Linda wants to know: "I always thought vellum was that very thin paper you can see through. What is Bristol vellum?"
A: The term 'vellum' can refer to a kind of paper (usually translucent or semi-translucent), or it can refer to the surface finish of paper. Bristol is a type of paper that is created with multiple plies - it's very sturdy and a great multipurpose art paper for a variety of media. Bristol comes in a smooth finish (great for marker and ink blending and light applications of wet media) and a vellum finish which is slightly textured or toothy. The vellum finish works best for dry media like pencils, pastels or charcoal.
 
Feedback From Past Tutorials
Lee has a great tip for Nail Polish Marbling: "Use warm water! If your water is too cold, the polish will be difficult to stir."
