Pop’s Sickle

#DoodlewashAugust2022 prompt: Popsicle.

Did you know that in 1923, Frank Epperson, filed the patent for the popsicle? He had been calling them Eppsicles, but his children called them “Pop’s ‘sicles,” and that’s the name that stuck .

This looks a bit like a print, but it was an experiment to see if I could get away with using masking fluid and salt. As it turns out, I did. I’ll want to try this some more using different papers but both the salt and the masking fluid came off just fine.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist?
