Golden Dandelion Skirt by EccentricTeatime Golden Dandelion Skirt by EccentricTeatime
I got gold ink! Time to party.

I also got sepia ink, so NOW I'm experimenting with finishing the paintings in a wash of sepia ink as opposed to making it very brown with a wash of burnt umber. Thrilling stuff, this. I also did the lines here with a dip pen as opposed to a sepia ink pen, which means threats of blotting but also finer lines. Yay!

Tools: watercolors, dip pens, sepia ink, copper plate gold ink, white liquid acrylic, photoshop.

It turned out better than I had hoped; the gold ink is very metallic-glittery, making it prettier in real life, but doesn't blend as well with the not-so-sparkly watercolors. For once my scanner eating the colors did me a favor!

How do does sepia ink work then? I thought you had to, like, red room a photograph or something for it to be sepia

Boring explanation time! (since I don't fully understand the question)
Sepia is the scientific name for the genus to which cuttlefish belong. Sepia ink was first acquired through the ink sac of the cuttlefish, and then the term 'sepia' began to be used to describe anything of a rich reddish-brown color - the same color as the cuttlefish's ink.
So 'sepia ink' is just like normal ink except its brown in color.

Sepia toning applies to photography. Its a technique used (I don't know how) to make the photograph warmer in color by making it brown-red, or, 'sepia'.

And that's all I know.

I have a cuttlefish. I named him Gerge (spelled that way, I was seven) and wrote his name on his side. He lives in a shoebox at the top of my wardrobe.

Really. I found him in March (the place, not the month, at least I don't think it was the month)

Everyone has a cuttlefish but me!!!! I don't wannaaa 

I heard they're very smart; is this true? Could you get it to do tricks?
And it sounds like he's still alive, so how old is he?
Oh and, AWWWW! Cuttlefish! Somehow that as a pet suits you better than a purebred cat.

I am not sure if they are intelligent

But he is not alive, he was not alive when I found him. I think they only live for a year or so, I was talking about a fossilised cuttlefish. I wish it was alive, it would make me very happy, but considering I dissected my sea-monkeys, maybe it is for the better he is not

Whoah, a fossilized cuttlefish? That's splendid! I thought he was alive...though it would make more sense as to why it lived in a shoe box on your wardrobe if he's a fossil. (And yes, poor Gerge was better of long dead than risk getting vivisected by an eight year old)

I would love a fossilized sea creature to put on my shelf. Right now I only have a beaver skull, coyote skull, stag skull, and a turtle shell. Oh, and raccoon feet bones. We do have a giant clam fossil in our backyard, but it looks like a weird rock; you'd never guess it was anything more interesting than a chunk of limestone.
