As part of her research for an upcoming North Light project, author Lisa Cyr wants to hear from you. What types of unique and customized tools are you using in your artwork? She has identified three categories that most unconventional tools fall into: altered tools—traditional painting tools that have been modified in some way; repurposed tools—non-art tools that have been adapted for art making; and custom tools—tools
made up of everyday materials that don’t fall into the other
- How have you altered your traditional painting tools to make unique marks on the painting surface?
tools have you repurposed from other industries (culinary,
construction, fashion, etc.) for use in your paintings? How have they
enhanced your art?
- What custom tools (tools that have not been altered or repurposed) have you created using everyday materials? What effects have you been able to achieve?
