Ok, so I know my challenge this year included not using black linework. But, for a stone like Merlinite? I must make an exception. After a painfully indecisive yet delightful hour of staring at stones, enjoying a locally-brewed beer, and listening to the governor’s pandemic update, my Merlinite palm stone caught my eye. Hours later, here we are, listening to Wu-Tang, posting Day 18’s Crystal Unicorn on the website.
All Crystal Unicorn paintings are 9×12″, painted to last with lightfast watercolor, gouache, and ink on archival paper. Paints and mediums used in collection include Kuretake Gansai Tambi, Daniel Smith, Winsor and Newton, and Prima. The linework is brushed on with Dr. Ph. Martin’s Bombay India Ink. The paper used is 140-lb Arches Hot Press watercolor paper. They are packaged in a bag-and-board situation (think how comic books are stored), and shipped in a cardboard envelope for added protection. All Crystal Unicorns come with a certificate of authenticity.
