Opaque white is useful for hiding errors… But did you know it can also be used to draw "in the negative" on a screen? By projecting white, you can, for example, draw stars in a dark sky, foam on the sea, or the impacts of an explosion…
You can use white correction fluid (or opaque white) to add highlights to your drawing. You can also use white calligraphy ink: because it is easier to use, it is ideal for beginners!
Your material: a conical nib that's already been broken in.
Step by Step:
- if the nib is not moist enough, all you'll get is blots;
- if it is too moist, the white will drip and spot your drawing.
Stars in the sky, foam on a dark sea, traces from the impact of an explosion… all these items can be represented by projecting white onto your drawing. Your material: an old worn paint brush or even a tooth brush!
Note: remember to cover the rest of the drawing with some scratch paper!!!
For delicate projections: blow through the paint brush hairs to create a fine white drizzle.
