Q:  What medium do you use?

Q:  What brushes are used?

A:  Rebecca uses both natural and synthetic brushes, varying in brand.  Sharp pointed brushes for detail are preferred.

Q:  I have seen Rebecca mention paintings with silver or gold on her site or in social media.  What is this?

A:  Often Rebecca adds accents of sterling sliver or 24kt gold to her paintings.  These ‘paints’ are ground silver or gold (making them pigments, essentially) combined with a binder and formed into a cake for use.  See this link for more information: https://lathamstudios.com/rebecca/2014/01/sterling-silver-and-24kt-gold/
