As a result of our T'Arts meeting last month thanks to Lin, I have been trying out some new ideas and have had a lovely play today with some new tools and ideas for gelatine printing.
|Cake decorating stencil|
|Print on greaseproof paper, text written in reverse with shaper tool, spiral cut from laminated paper, pastry brush and picture cut from magazine.|
After my last workshop I had a couple of armatures that I had made but instead of covering with gauze and dipping in kozo I decided to use some paper that I made from the hemp and cotton that came from Bangladesh. I love this fibre it recycles so well and the resultant paper is extremely strong.
|Bowl with balls (work in progress)|
|Close up of the balls, each will open to reveal a book.|
|Book pages to be, pulp painted, the colour is from the coloured sheets|
|The hemp and cotton paper from Bangladesh thanks to Liz|
