I love this! Did you use white ink to get the light details in the black areas? (If so... what kind was it? I cannot find a reliable white ink for the life of me. The best I can get to work for me is acrylic paint).

Can I ask where you purchase your eraser-blocks for stamp carving? I've just gotten my copy of your book but haven't been able to find eraser blocks big enough to work with (say for the little house scene or a bird with wings extended). Any suggestions as to where to get them would be much appreciated!!

I'd love to know how you feel about brushes now that you've been illustrating for a good number of years. Are your recommended brushes, paints still the same from your early "how-to" posts? I was inspired by your blog about a year ago, and have also started watercolor, learning my own preference for paints, but always love to learn and hear more about it. Thank you for writing!

The tin in the picture, Edgeworth plug slice - I have this tin and inside I have 12 half pans of watercolour paint. In the lid I have a piece of plastic I use as a mini pallette.

My travelling paint tin, what a wonderful coincidence!

Great :D Congratulations Genine.
By the way; I was waiting Genine's answer to the interesting questions that some of you posted here. Does Genine usually answer questions, or she just post an article and thats all ?
