In the Studio : jumping

I spent a full 8 hour day in my studio yesterday. I jumped from one project to another hoping to land on using these new tools. These three marking devices are made of felt. I've been thinking of making some like this for some time. My plan was to buy industrial felt or maybe using chalk erasers to build pens and stamping devices or large pens.

Imagine my surprise when making a studio visit with Justin Bursk he pulls out these as a gift for me.

if you don't make your own tools


For my last series of drawings I constructed an acetate mask to make the background color fields on which I would place my marks. This was successful and I like that way of creating color fields. But I want to make a different single stroke mark. I could use a brush to do that but it would use too much pigment for the surface I want.
