Process: What is Ink Drawing?
Ink drawings are made with a liquid that has pigments and/or dyes which is used to colour a surface to produce an image, text, or design. Ink is used for drawing and/or writing with a pen, brush, or quill. Thicker inks, in paste form, are often used in letterpress and lithographic printing.
Ink can be a complex medium, composed of solvents, pigments, dyes, resins, lubricants, solubilizers, surfactants, particulate matter, fluorescers, and other materials. The components of inks serve many purposes; the ink's carrier, colorants, and other additives control flow and thickness of the ink and its appearance when dry.
Process: What is Collage?
A collage is a picture or design created by gluing typically flat elements such as newspaper, wallpaper, printed text and illustrations, photographs, cloth, string, etc. to a surface. Cubist artists such as Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque used collage by including various found objects, pictures and text in their works, influencing many later Modern and Contemporary artists to this day, as well as promoting the medium's acceptance as a real art form. The materials selected for collages were and are primarily chosen for their symbolism. Some types of collage are: Photomontages - where photographs are arranged artistically onto a surface, and Decoupages, where a picture(s) is placed onto an object for decoration, as well as your standard mixed media collage, where various elements are added to a work already done in another medium, like painting.
