    These paintings are so beautiful! I’ve been watching on YouTube the various methods of producing canvas art. This is a more exacting method of producing art, I believe…not hit or miss like paint pouring.
    I think I would like to try this, but unfamiliar with Yupo paper. I am familiar with Tim Holtz and have always liked his art products.
    Again, very lovely!

    Thank you all! It’s dangerous that Lima Beads has these inks individually for purchase. I want them all! I started using them on metal charms and stamped pieces.
