Molotow Masking Fluid Pen = Awesome!

I discovered the Molotow Masking Fluid Pen after reading about it on iHanna's blog.  I couldn't find it in too many American stores, but I did find it at Art Primo online.  This pen works just like regular masking fluid, but it comes out from a pen so it's much easier to control.

First, I drew the word "Imagine" using the masking fluid pen.  The fluid comes out blue, as you can see in the next picture.  After I drew my words, I used watercolor paint to doodle on top of the letters and around them.

Here's the final picture!  I can't wait to use the Molotow masking fluid pen more!

Scan of Fall Leaves Printable

Aren't the colors of the fall leaves breathtaking?  I scanned some of the leaves that I found on the trees here in Wisconsin.  Feel free to print these out, color designs on them with permanent or paint markers, make a collage or just draw from the pictures.  They would also look good on a bulletin board.

An Interview with William Wegman and International Dot Day


I have TWO very cool things to share with you.

1.   I had the opportunity to talk to one of my favorite artists ON THE PHONE.  William Wegman, who is known for dressing his dogs in costumes and photographing them, was so gracious to talk to me on the phone for an interview.  I posted it on my other blog, Art is Basic.  Hop over there to listen to the recording!!

2.  You know how I shared my dot paintings in the last post?  Well, we celebrated International Dot Day at school and I made a blog post about my students' artworks, also on Art is Basic.
