kosher things

Experimenting with bleedproof marker paper, my Winsor & Newton alcohol markers, and the whole water and kosher salt thing. I can’t recommend that combination - the paper expands, but the plasticized bleedproof coating does not, so this swiftly curled up like a scroll.

I just had what is possibly the daftest chat conversation of 2015, in which two pertinent questions were raised:

1. Can a dragon convert to Judaism?

2. If the answer to the first question is yes, how would the relevant dietary laws apply to something whose diet consists in main of gemstones and precious metals? Would there be such a thing as kosher minerals?

I had to confess I hadn’t the faintest clue.

This was inspired by the prismatic painting exercise in Art Escapes: Daily Exercises and Inspirations for Discovering Greater Creativity and Artistic Confidence by Dory Kanter (2003). I started with a Pentel compact brush pen, then colored the drawing with purple, grey, and black watercolor pencils (multiple brands). After using a waterbrush on the drawing, I applied Reeve’s Payne’s Grey watercolor over the page and sprinkled the whole thing with kosher salt.
