I'm thinking of gloves for both hands, with extensions on the ends of the fingers appropriate to the media being utilized.
For painting, brush-fingers.
For sketching, charcoal-fingers.
For carving, blade-fingers.
For sculpting, stylus-fingers.
The advantage the artgloves is the
enabling of the artiste to not be hindered by the limitations of a single creative interaction point between object and subject -- instead, there are TEN.
Artgloves are naturally ideally suited most likely to abstract/ expressionist/ stream-of-consciousness works over realist styles.
Rather than an event or a process, creation becomes a terpsichoreographic experience!
The donning of the glove.
