I have this new paper made of stone. It seemed like a good way of both testing the paper and trying to work with liquid ink. But boy... it was hard! the texture is quite different and the more ink I used, the more it bled. The ink also stays wet for a looooong time! I made a picture while waiting for it to dry (see above) . Interesting paper though! I think you can see that my hatching with dip pen approved as I went along, the lines are straighter and more consistent. Overal I'm pretty happy with the class and my results :) I used a Tombow kuretake pen, a fine tip fountain pen with grey ink, my new Sennelier indigo ink with both a brush and a dip pen. Thanks again Jen!
