This is my 3rd post about my favorite artist tools - but I suppose they could actually be called unique art supplies depending upon how you use them. FYI - Art supplies and tools don't always have to be expensive to be considered "good". This week's post is about newsprint. But of course, I rarely (if EVER) use NEW newsprint... I instead, prefer recycled newsprint. What is newsprint? It is most recognized as..well.. newsprint. Your morning newspaper is printed on it (if you still subscribe to that sort of thing). Or you may know it as packing paper (which is how I usually find it). I know it as the paper I was allowed to color on and make messes on as I grew up. :) My parents always had a stack of it in the basement from when we last moved. As I grew up and started to recognize quality art supplies (and quality art paper), I turned my nose up at newsprint. BUT as an artist who is not only looking to recycle and reuse items, but to be thrifty as well.
