Technical Tuesday

Tea Staining
Many artists manipulate their surfaces prior to drawing or painting on them in order to achieve a desired aesthetic. Above is one example - tea staining. I would like you to investigate how to tea stain paper and create a page in your workbook that shows the successful execution of this technique while doing something creative on top of it. Make sure that you give your paper time to dry prior to drawing on it, but consider media like graphite, ballpoint pen, crayons, colored pencils...basically, whatever you think might look cool. Have fun with this - I look forward to your results!
Keep your pencils sharp and your ideas fresh,
