Hello fellow Alchemists,
Today I am sharing with you the August 2018 Scrawlrbox. This is my first Scrawlrbox Challenge! Wow I made it out the other side lol… Scrawlrbox is a nice affordable subscription box based in the UK that ships worldwide.
I decided to paint a stained glass window with a cross turning into a sword for this months False Prayer challenge. I added three gems to represent the Holy Trinity (forgot to mention that in the video).
The waterbrush was a total nightmare to work with. Mine either was dry as a bone or released way too much water, there was no middle ground. Wasn’t fussed on the botanical paper included in the box for use with the Inktense paint palette either. I think I will try it out with some regular watercolours and see how it works. My pencil feathered a lot where it was applied heaily though I didn’t get this problem in my sketchbook…
Overall I really liked the new Inktense palette and the addition of seven new colours to the range. Hopefully they bring them out in pencil and block form. I already own the complete set of pencils and a small tin of blocks so am familiar with the medium. Next time I use them though I will be using a proper brush!
The Faber-Castell Graphite Aquarelle was a nice pencil to work with, just not on the included Botanical 50% cotton paper. All in all as someone who cannot draw very well I think I did ok for the August 2018 Scrawlrbox challenge. The next ones a doozy… lol Hope you are creating your own arty crafty alchemy, see you all next time.
