On A Creative Binge

Pastel on Canson Mi-tientes Pastel Board

Ever since I got the book "Painting the Spirit of Nature" by Maxine Masterfield" I have been on a creative journey along with my classes. We're using lots of fixative, water, alcohol, Pam spray,hardware doodads such as framing and other metal clips ( for creating shapes and tailings) sponge brush, pencils (pastel and otherwise) shipping popcorn, crushed plastic wrap and other assorted papers, even some oil pastel, etc. I'm finding that the relatively new Canson Mi-Tientes Board can withstand a tough beating so using all these tools without damaging the paper is possible. I would love to hear from you out there telling me what tools you use.
