Day 1 with Lisa Lee

Celebrate our new product launch….with Inchie Arts

As you know, we carry several different sizes of the popular Inchie Arts Art Square products. And when they decided to launch their new 4” black Art Squares they invited us to announce and sell it first. 

In fact, it was one of our artists (you know who you are SC!) that nudged Inchie Arts to introduce this particular size and color.  To celebrate, we invited a handful of our designers and artists to let creativity fly with the new 4” black Art Squares. 

Every day from now through Saturday we will be posting amazing creations from Lisa Lee, Barb Rogers, Lindsay Waltman-Ostrom, Sunny Carvalho, Jessica Sporn and Kristen Powers.
And on the Inchie Arts blog, ALL IN AN INCH, Lisa will be sharing lots of techniques and tips for all sizes of black Art Squares from 1" to 4".  

A few things you may not know about black Art Squares:
·        they are made from 100% cotton (not paper)
·        they are a super black with the 'black' sourced from natural ebony
·        they are a perfect 4 ply substrate for direct art application especially acrylic paints, white and metallic detail pens, colored pencils, Pan Pastels, stamping and embossing with white or light colors, chalk board style work and photo creations.  


Day 1 with Lisa Lee - Patterns...and a chalkboard effect


Begin by randomly stamping a 4” black Art Square with the positive paisley drop from RubberMoon KRE 8 TIV Elements set using white pigment ink. 


Once dry, draw over the stamped lines with a Signo white opaque pen.


Using the same white pen, draw open shape patterns within each of the paisley drops. Don’t make them too small as you will be coloring in each of the spaces you create.



Prismacolor pencils work beautifully on the black Art Squares and the lighter colors really stand out – like chalk on a chalkboard! And, if you look carefully each paisley drop has on space that has been colored with either a silver or gold metallic pen as a nod to a favorite artist of ours named Hundertwasser, who used this technique in much of his work!


And if you would like your very own package of black 4” Art Squares, they are available here at RubberMoon!

  17. Your paisley insides are yummy. They should be on the most expensive silk scarves in a boutique on Rodeo Drive! Until then they are fab on black 4x4 Inchie Arts, LLC in the Northwest.
