Over the rainbow,
in a land far away
there is a beautiful place
A lovely place

This mixed media painting is made from acrylic and ink on natural Shell Paper (see below).
Shell Paper is a multi-media paper made with actual shell emulsion, specially designed to accept acrylics, watercolors, inks, pastels, and even oil pastels! The paper comes in colors and natural white; colored papers are made using organic pigments, and natural white adds a beautiful pearlescent effect to transparent washes. Surface is lustrious and semi-absorbant. In fact, the calcium in the shell coating allows for wet media techniques, making Shell Paper the ideal surface for multimedia expressions using a wide array of media from crayon and charcoal to fluid acrylics and inks.
