Biro drawings - simple techniques and fun results!

I always take my sketchbook around with me and currently my sketchbook of choice is a brown paged A5 number. Drawing on coloured paper makes thinks interesting aanyway but this past few weeks I have been having lots of fun with liquid paper/ white out/ tippex unlike some paints it leaves quite a smooth surface and doesn't distort the colour of the inks or biros in my case!!

try it out and see what you think!!

Master - craft, crafternoon update!

Despite the truly heinous weather I managed to take some after shots of Mr C's concrete bowl it didn't work out how he wanted to I really,  really like the look of the water trails running down the bowl!

The plan is to repeat this process again but use a little pudding bowl so the walls of the bowl are super thick and chunky, and using a special sandpaper Mr C intends on getting it super smooth and shiny!
A fun but messy project!!
