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.
