I have been experimenting with Shiva Paint Stiks today. I had heard that they are an amazing medium. I found them to be pretty awesome myself. They are smooth and creamy and blend flawlessly together. The only drawback that I found, at least for myself, is that you need to let them dry for at least 24 hours before layering over the top with other mediums. As impatient as I am, I think they might just be worth it! I haven't finished these obviously....but here is what I've done with them so far.
These are done on Bristol Vellum, because that's what was close at hand at the time. I used three colors all together, Antique White, Beige and Dusty Rose. I smooshed them around with my fingers and in the smaller areas, used a small brush. I'm pretty happy with how these perform, so I think I'm going to experiment some more!
