I was asked recently: "What do you use to sign your paintings?"
I do not sign my paintings in a traditional manner. Almost all artists utilize some sort of liner brush, some thin paint and a steady hand in order to sign their work. I used to do this. I found it stressful though! I had just spent hours upon hours creating what I felt like was a great work of art, only to have the pressure of not screwing it up while attempting to sign my name with a tool I wasn't comfortable with.
Fast forward to today. I now don't worry about the liner brush, some thin paint and a steady hand... instead I now use a tool that actually removes paint from the panel/canvas rather than adds to it. The tool is a small rubber tipped brush that is designed to remove small amounts of paint from your work. I decided that I could use this tool, and just sign my name as I normally would with a pen and 'voila', my signature appears on the painting without any stress. If I were to screw it up, I would just simply push the paint around with a brush and try again (although, I never screw it up with this tool).
I love this tool.
