Very cool and interesting technique. Really like the lines Ted made with the pencil. It is so different from anything I've seen before. Thanks for sharing. Really appreciate the list of all of the colors he used. Plum??? Who knew?

Much effort, work, material and energy for a questionable result. Sorry.

:shock:
WOW!!!
I love the texture created with the pencil and water technique! Wooohoooo!! You have inspired me!! I can not wait to get into the studio and try this!!

I am not sure if this is the place to ask the question...so I will forge ahead and ask, all the powder used was the same size? Except for the small amount which was hand sprinkled upon the water lines?
Thank you!! Awesome art!

Hi Judith,

Thanks for your post, and your question--I believe Ted is off work right now, and it will be a few days before we can ask him.

Lovely, lovely piece. I find texture and complex colors very appealing.

I think this one of your better videos recently -- full of information and inspiration, and yes, I will be down in the studio tomorrow morning flinging powder :mrgreen: .

Thank you!

We heard about some confusion regarding the cup measure that Ted refers to in the video. He is not referring to 8-oz standard kitchen measuring cups. He says: "The “cups” referred to in my video are 1 oz condiment cups. They hold about 35 grams of powder."
