Art Toolkit Favourites  ~ Val Miles

One of my favourite art making tools that I wouldn’t be able to make my art without is the copper, silver and gold foil that I use to gild my paintings.  Since I started using foil it has taken over as one of my favourite mediums.  I love the different effects that it creates and it inspires me to experiment.  I use birds in most of my paintings and the foil seems to capture the lightness and fun that I see in birds.
