The way that this has been put on paper is rather hazardous too. With my accident prone tendencies it's not a way of working that I'm going to try out in the motorhome at anytime soon, unless I decide to embark on an experiment around starting a life over devoid of possessions. Spazuk uses a technique called fumage, drawing with a candle or torch flame to leave sooty deposits. He then embellishes the images with paint and gold leaf. For those of you who've got a hankering to find out more here's how this clever artist operates. As a safety warning, it's probably an activity to try out in the open with a fire extinguisher handy if you fancy giving it a go!
