    Filling Or Shading ?

    experiment with different ways of whip shading until you get the desired effect. shorter whips, quicker whips, different angles, crosshatching...

    Fw Liquid Acryllic

    make different mixes of burnt umber/raw sienna/sepia/yellow ochre and water and dip strips of paper in them until you find the tone you like, it helps if you have a quality print or OG flash with a staining you like so you have something to compare to. I'd share my secret concoction but I don't remember it because I rarely bother with staining

    Sailor Jerry Repro's Anchor And Roses

    look at the originals, think about what makes the designs so strong and try to reproduce them as accurately as you can (the amount of black, the saturation of colors, even line weight etc)

    Looking For Folio Advice/critique/direction...

    try different blacks until you find something you like. talens is nice, good for smooth gradients, but pretty glossy when dry.
