Gifts from Nature: Creative Inspiration and Free Art Supplies!

Now is the perfect time of year to spend time outdoors, and if you need an excuse to do so - gathering ideas and art supplies is a great one.

A delightful collection of recipes and how-to's for making your own inks and tools to use those inks. Not high difficulty but often time consuming and messy, this book is great for the artist who wants to bring an organic or rustic feel to their supplies.

I felt this book was explained clearly. I didn't try any of the recipes or other craft, but the projects looked very doable. I was surprised however that the subtitle uses the word paint as one of the first elements, but there was very little time spent on paint. Most of the time was spent on ink.

This book has all the "recipes" you need to make your basic must-have supplies (charcoal, paint, sketchbooks, etc.). I got to try several and I can proudly say that they worked very well. The instructions are simple and easy to follow and not as time consuming as I thought they would be. I'll definitely be buying a copy of this for my personal art library!
