Hi there,

I have been enjoying your beautiful work for a while now, in secret. :) I would like to know, though, what do you use for the black outlines? I recently did some outlining for a painting, and at first I used a Sharpie (I paint with acrylics), and the ink didn't seem to sit too well on it. In the end I just used black acrylic paint, but boy, did that take for-friggin-ever.

Thanks,
Reese

Yeah. I've tried both of those things. The Sharpie worked beautifully for me on two acrylic paintings. Then mysteriously, Sharpies didn't want to work anymore. Paint is the best, but yes: takes a million years. Lately I've been using DecoColor paint pens (find them in art stores, often locked in glass cabinets so the kiddies don't sniff them, I guess). They've been working great, but are really shiny when they're dry, so I brush the finished painting with acrylic matte gel medium to tone it down. Good luck!

Thanks! I will try those. :)
