Colour samplesThe oil paints I use are made from rust (brown), soot (black) and chalk (white). The paint is made from a mixture of linseed and walnut oil.

The colours match the chocolate licorice allsort so one of the first things I painted was this selection. I also like painting snail shells – it’s something about their weird geometry.

Fake Pounds. Here is my collection of pounds which I think are fake. some of them are terrible quality but a couple I am not so sure about. They could be worth a pound. The Bank of England has since removed them from circulation.
