By Jacquline Sullivan:
DVD37. Mixed Media - Collage - Acrylics: Textures, Layers and Metallics. DVD. 2008. 115 min. $32.95
This instructional DVD for beginning and intermediate collage artists covers both techniques and composition. Jacqueline demonstrates her intricate, many layered painting and then gives you instruction on the proper way to layer tissue, cheesecloth and aluminum and which acrylic medium to use for each texture. There are now a wide range of acrylic mediums and Jacqueline clearly explains the differences. The viewer is instructed on how to refine these techniques, document them, and utilize them within the context of sound composition. The challenge is always to create and refine. She explains why and how she makes adjustments for a superior composition. With this art instruction video you will learn to be artistically courageous - to find your own unique style and techniques. She opens up the unlimited possibilities of collage. The techniques presented can be used to create a painting based on the many materials - a collage - or use them to create a rich under-layment to pictorial elements.

I43. Best Bottle Sumi Ink
Best Bottle Sumi Ink

This popular Japanese sumi ink is good both for beginners and for professional work. Smooth, rich black. Hard to find. One of the popular sumi inks for calligraphy. 6.75 oz, 200 ml bottle.

"The Best Bottle Sumi Ink truly is the best bottle. You can write three to four times longer with a pointed pen nib before the ink dries between the tines enough to alter the writing (this compared to Moon Palace)." C. M.

My test for any ink is to see if it will produce sharp thick and thin strokes at less than one sixteenth inch body height with a #6 Mitchell nib. Stick ink passes that test while most bottled inks don't, especially waterproof inks including sumi ones. The brown bottle sumi [Best Bottle] is non-waterproof, and I find it is better than others. –S.W.

I70. Moon Palace Sumi Ink
Moon Palace Sumi
The Ink is now in a bottle with a Gold Label

While the packaging is a bit different, this is the highly sought after and highly recommended Japanese Sumi Ink. For both broad edge and pointed pen work. Dries waterproof. A great calligraphy ink.

"I like Moon Palace better, but both Moon Palace and Best Bottle are beautiful inks. The Moon Palace has a slight sheen to it, which I like. Michael suggested this ink to me so please tell him I said, "thank you". I just finished a job of 200 invitations with Moon Palace and the ink is beautiful. I did not dilute the ink.
A client just brought me invitations (slick paper) to address. This bride knew going into this that I probably couldn't do pointed pen. However, for fun, I tried the Sumi inks and to my surprise they worked pretty darn good. I usually have to use a sharpie on slick envelopes, yikes!!!"

--Clair F., Jan 2011.

Four sizes available:

2.0 oz (widemouthed jar)
6.0 oz (180ml)

15 & 60 oz are temporarily unavailable: arriving Dec 2019

S626. Yasutomo Niji Pearlescent Pan Set
Yasutomo Pearlescent Watercolor Paint Sets.

Hinged plastic case with a lid that can be used as a palette, but with 21 colors, you won’t need to do too much mixing! Carol Palleson tested this set and gave a thumbs-up for the combination of price and quality. Other sets - costing $20 for fewer colors - are more brightly pearlescent, but these are a bargain for adding fun touches to envelopes and cards. From China.
