How did you Tone the Paper for this Drawing? Great drawing.
I used shellac, denatured alcohol, and graphite powder and just brushed it on. I can't seem to remember the ratio for the shellac and alcohol, I'll look it up and get back.
With that shellac-"Tone Mix" does it matter what paper you use?

Ive only tried a few papers and it seemed to work fine on either. I used artistico fabriano and strathmore. Give it a try and experiment.
I have been experimenting with the shellac mix. The brush used and the amount of Graphite, makes quite a difference to the final outcome. I can see why you suggest testing.I am going to try adding a light "color" to the mix too. Thanks for your input.
