Oh boy have we just had the funniest evening ever!
We played out a Who Dunnit Murder Mystery, so we each dressed up and took on a role.
From Madame Edith La Grande Butte (moi)
Nicole La Grande Butte
Kirk Ramson III
to Otto von Pinkelwürst (aka Speelchecker)
I haven’t laughed so much in years. For three hours we went round the room, establishing our defences and interrogating each other. And then, right at the end - and I mean right at the end, just before we were supposed to give our verdict, somebody asked
“so does it say on our scripts if we’re the murderer or not?”
and Kelly from the Telly said “Yes. Nooooooooooooo!”
We could have had another murder on our hands!
Kelly’s the one in the corner, looking like Grouch Marx.
Back to the artwork.
Time is on the wing.
We only have 2 days left here in France!
But it has been formidable.
Flick some water over the plate and pull a print on
Lay the Clockwork stencil down on the plate.
In fact, lay a piece of white card underneath,
so that you can see what you’re doing!
Using make-up sponges, add acrylic paint through the stencil,
Before you lift the stencil, blot lightly with a paper towel.
Then lift the stencil off.
See the pattern from the paper towel?
Pull a print on the pastel yellow card
you have already gelli-plated.
Time to add a couple of arty words...
and a couple of birds.
They always lift a piece.
and then mount on another funky Gelli piece.
I do hope you like this piece. I had fun creating it.
Lots of love,
