    Yes--I used sharpies and loved the process. I started with acrylics using both ends of my brushes but found it frustrating.

    When I did that aboriginal painting swap I remember feeling frustrated trying to find something that made consistent nice dots. Felt pens are a great idea!

    Hi Sarat, thanks for the invitation and I would love to join this swap. Actually I already made a couple off cards because at first I was afraid I would'nt have enough time. All these dots make you appreciate Seurat all the more. One question: what is the meaning of "SASE"? Bye, Simone (siempie_h) from Holland.

    I need to join please! I absolutely love the pointillism and dot painting technique! Sakura gel and glaze pens are very nice at making dots and Microns in different sizes do well also.
    Crafting is my passion!!!

    So glad you decided to join. Yes--one does appreciate Seurat and working on a huge canvas as well.
    SASE means self addressed stamped envelope .. Since you are an international player I will pay your postage, so you can just send me a label with your address or an envelope with your address on it.

    Hope that clarifies your question.

    I wouldn't worry about perfect dots -- the original artists used a variety of strokes too!

    I think you'll be good at it! Especially with all of your mandala work.

    Would these be acceptable.

    They are somewhat simplistic. I don't want people to be disappointed. The first 2 I did with felt tips. I have a very limited range. I then moved on to acrylics and a small paintbrush.

    I can't say I enjoyed it, but it made me appreciate how some works took so long. Take a look at some of these.

    Strangely, I love spending hours making patterns with dots though, but I think that's something different.

    If the 4 above are OK, join me up.

    I think doing them with just a Micron pen is the most satisfying for me. I can just concentrate on building up tones with more or less dots. I might try some colored pens just for fun. I'm kind of a black and white/pen and ink person, so I enjoy the minimalist approach of just a .01 Micron. I can get more detail into a small drawing than I can with paint. That's just my personal feeling. I can't imagine doing a large painting! Those guys had patience!

    My scanner seemed to wash out the vibrancy of the colors. When you see the set in person the colors are more intense.
