My friend Katherine recently went to see the annual exhibition of the Royal Society of MiniaturePainters,Sculpters and Gravers. This reminded me that I had some Ivorine put to one side, so I decided it was time to have a go at my own miniature.
Ivorine is a manufactured imitation ivory with a white translucent surface. It is totally smooth and very easy to work on.
I wanted a change from cats so decided to paint a Chipmunk that I photographed in the Mount Ranier National Park whilst on holiday.
I think it's a Least Chipmunk but please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
I decided to use acrylics on the Ivorine and I'm using 4/0 to 10/0 brushes.
If you are interested the only place that I know to purchase Ivorine is from Polymers Plus, they are very helpful and have an excellent mail order service.
