Eye Dropper Drawings

- 140 pound hot-press watercolor paper, cut down to 5" x 7" sheets
- black acrylic ink
- roll of toilet paper
- eye dropper
Load the eyedropper and squeeze the ink out gently onto your paper. Draw only the basics: face shape, hair, eyes, nose, mouth, neck.
Layer Ink Sketch With Toilet Paper
Quickly take a piece of toilet paper and lay it on top of your drawing. The ink will soak into the toilet paper and spread out underneath.
Remove Toilet Paper
Quickly lift the toilet paper off and set aside. Let dry completely.
Taking It Further
Working this way will probably provide many "disasters." Once the ink has dried, you can go back into the pieces you don't like, and see if you can pull them together with markers, colored pencil, charcoal or collage additions.
