11x14?! Who did this to me?

Recommended Posts

Ok so I understand that 11x14 inches is the accepted universal size to paint flash. Can anyone tell me why? I love painting flash but hate cutting paper throwing away the left over after paying so much for arches. Arches comes in 10x14 and ive painted flash on it and it seems great and you can hardly tell the one inch difference . I'd love if arches made an 11x14 block but have yet to see it. Why not just make the universal size 10x14?!?! Am I missing something?

I know what you mean. I use the leftover scraps for mini paintings that i sell for a couple of bucks at tattoo conventions or throw in care packages when i mail stuff out to other tattooers. I also use the 9"x12" blocks and mount that flash on an 11"x14" sheet of black [or whatever color you want] matte board, which fit nicely in the 11"x14" flash books or racks or whatever you may have.
