People often ask me what tools I used to create a painting. It might surprise you to know that I rarely use a paint brush, even though I have a million of them!
I probably use my favorite knife (the one on the right, obviously) more than any other tool. It’s the same one I’ve used for over 30 years! (that makes me sound old!)
In addition to my trusty knife, my favorite tools are mostly household objects. Toothpicks and cotton swabs are always close by, and my fingers are almost always covered with paint, they are great at blending!
Oh, and I have a box full of weird things, cookie cutters, combs, chains, screws, nails, sponges, syringes, straws, rope and popsicle sticks. I have even used balloons to make interesting marks in my work, really, everything and anything is game in my studio! 😉
Do you use any strange or unusual tools in your craft? Please do share!
