So where do you get all that texture from. Gesso before it's painted? You must be using graphite dust. I'm guessing. Impressive pieces...

Thanks havalotta.
I use gesso as the white paint and/or paper and build up in layers alternating with pencil and acrylic medium and acrylic paint. Then I burnish in between layers and coat it in the end with a final coat of medium. The graphite is from various grades of pencil, mostly soft unless I really want to incise the line into the piece when I use a really hard pencil.
