Fun with Botanicals
I've been inspired lately by natural dyes and the idea of making them into drawing inks. I've collected lichens, mushrooms and moss from the Girdwood Valley and berries from Mt. Alyeska. Friends and family have sent me more interesting berries, nuts and mosses from places far and near! I'm experimenting and creating beautiful limited batches of artisan, hand-crafted drawing inks and some of the colors are FAB! I've also noticed that by using glacier water, the colors are far more beautiful, clear and true.
