Found objects, objet trouvé in French, are items which an artist finds and incorporates within a work of art. Collectors have been displaying aesthetic objects in collections for centuries. But modern art uses objects with non-art functions, such as recycled or repurposed materials.
Pen and ink is a traditional drawing technique using a dip style pen with India ink on paper. The fine tip on the old-fashioned pen is excellent for drawing varied lines and shading details. Some artists use a fountain pen with ink reservoir.
East Indian ink is a medium made of fine soot, called lampblack, which is combined with water. The carbon molecules make a black, waterproof ink. It has been used in India since the 4th century BC. Artists use the ink for writing, drawing, and painting.
