Alphabet Of Tricks I, J, K, L

The I was written with a piece of balsa wood, and then lightly colored with colored pencil. The J was written with Sumi ink on Arches Text Wove and then rinsed quickly in the sink. I used a piece of Stimudent (Johnson & Johnson) to write the K, and colored one stripe. The L was made by writing with Duo Embellishing Adhesive, and when dry was dusted with Pearl-Ex powder. The scan doesn't show the iridescence, as there is a verdigris green shimmer to the Pearl-Ex Mink.


  1. Carol - love them. Just had to let you know that one of the first things I did today in the studio was write with Sumi and wash it off - stunning! I'm so excited!

  2. I used your K as inspiration for my weekly lettering project: My version looked much nicer in my head. Ah well, practice, practice, practice. Thanks.

  3. I would like to spend time in your studio, you have such interesting inks and stuff and even better you know how to use them, I am learning so much from your posts
