Do you Stipple...?

Stippling 101

created by: April Cole

The proper term for this technique is called
** Stippling **

Stippling is the creation of a pattern simulating varying degrees of solidity or shading by 
using small dots.

3.2 million ink dots
Thought I would share this very inspiring video.
Have fun... stippling away.
Have a wonderful Saturday!


  1. Yes, I have stippled! I first tried it after seeing some stippled art at an art fair. It fascinated me and I knew I had to try it. I haven't done any in a long time but after watching that video I think I might like to try it again...only not quite that detailed!

  2. Wow!! This is absolutely incredible! What a talent to be able to do that... me, I love to splash bright colors onto a canvas and call it a day! Thanks for sharing... happy weekend April!

  3. So clever. I don't do stippling, but I will give it a try:)

  4. Hi April ... Thanks for the lesson. Your work is very beautiful. I have not tried stippling, however I can see how it would be a very meditative process. I so appreciate you visiting my blog and leaving your words on my page. :o) hugs, Donna

  5. OMG! WOMAN! YIppee I love to stipple. Most people are like...are you whacko? But to me it is calming. It is still art but I can do it in my sleep...Plus I think it takes great patience to stipple. YEs another woman who stipples. woo hoo!

  6. Thank you Ladies, for stopping by for a visit! ((hugs))
    Glad to hear there are some "stippler artists" out there :]
    I agree, this takes repetitive motion with loads of patience... but the outcome of the artwork is worth it!!
    Love it!

  7. Yes, I do know that technique I used it a lot backk in 1980's
