Thanks for dropping in.
TV Day today.
If you aren’t going out, and you haven’t got any plans,
or rugby’s not your thing,
then why not tune in to HOCHANDA
Freesat 817(24/7) • Sky 663 (24/7) • Freeview 39 (6am-9pm)
I shall be getting inky 2-3 pm and 5-6pm
We decided to split the hours, because it’s just less stressful.
Here’s a step be step guide to one of the projects
I will hopefully get to at 5pm;
sometimes it’s cool to get a snapshot breakdown....
Stamp the Elegance Dancer onto the 8x10 Gellplate
using Black Adirondack/ dye-based ink.
Flip the plate on the matching Megamount and place the girl on our large 8.5" x 11" Stencil Card.
Flip it back, rub the back of the card and pull the first print.
Provided you positioned her right, there will be plenty of room for the ghost print, the second print.
There she is.
split them up, and stamp the upside reflection into place,
this time using a Black Archival.
Place the mask which comes with the stamp
over the image above the water.
Add a moon upstairs and partition off with masking tape.
Using a brayer, roll an undercoat of Juniper across the sky.
Now roll Denim in from the top.
This combo of colours is delightful.
Pull in colour from the edges with a make-up sponge.
And now let’s switch ends, and do the water.
Shuffle the mask up, add a little denim and then add the moon.
Add more Denim to the brayer, roll the inky brayer over a sheet of screwed up paper, and roll the brayer over the water area.
Remove all the masking tape.
Colour in the girl’s leotard with a matching pencil,
both above the water and in the reflection.
Now come the 3-D bit.
Using grey and black pencils create a drop shadow
underneath the letters of the word ELEGANCE.
Amazing how a little drop shadow can create so much depth!
Run a black Sharpie around the edges
Mat and layer.
Now if I can remember all this on the live art show,
it’ll be a miracle !!!
Time to go figure out what to wear....
A leotard and tights?
Well now... that might increase the number of viewers!!!
Love & hugs,
