It was interesting to read the gulf between grandparents and teenager’s uttered slang words. So much so that the jargon of yoof and grups have been combined by creating an on-line slang dictionary.
Imagine how disappointed I was, looking through the terms that there were no art related terms. Perhaps I could volunteer a few ideas for entry;
Synlapse [sin-laps] the involuntary action of the drawing instrument to move in a totally different direction to that the brain intended.
Wibble [we-bull] side to side whilst traversing motion or unusual use of a brush or rubber tipped pencil.
Surficon [serf-icon] bargain watercolour paper purchased at an art show that doesn’t perform as promised.
Osnosmith [Oh-no-smiths] well meaning paint set gift from relative.
Dlipse [dip-lapse] the action of accidentally dipping the brush in a beverage
Frange [F-anne-g] an area of unglued paper tape where water collects and backruns emanate from.
Iconeaze [icon-ease] the way the demonstrating artist makes it look easy
Eazimud [easy-mud] a watercolour mixture made up of many colours.
Moltner [molt-nur] a natural hair brush with a tendency to shed hair - especially in the spring.
