I Have Green Thumbs (Literally)

Actually, almost all of my fingers are green/blue,  a testament to how much fun I had tonight playing with my new Dylusions inks. I bought a few after seeing the amazing things that Ephemeral Gecko does with them. My technique is still developing, but I like what they do so far. To make things interesting I used them on some old map pages I had lying around from my map garland project.  The paper is not as porous as some other types so I was able to get a dripping/running effect with the ink that I really like.  Interested to see how they work on other sorts of papers as well.  And of course, I need to get some in every color 🙂



  1. Love them! Those inks are on my “to buy” list, too.

  2. And my thumbs are usually some color other than flesh-colored. =)

    1. I really like them! If you are only buying a few to start I’d recommend getting a red, blue, and yellow. I did two blues (a turquoise and a truer blue) and a yellow, but the only color I could mix then was a green! I was wishing I had some red so that I could have had some purples and oranges in the mix 🙂

      1. Good advice! Thanks 🙂

  3. super cool! Speshly like Chicago and the paper-clip stencils 🙂 (I’m also typing with blue/green fingers. We are starting a big trend!!)

  4. Those look like fun!

  5. […] quick post to show the evolution of some of the experiments from my green thumbs post about experimenting with Dylusions Spray Inks. I decided to take my two favorites and pop them into […]
