Frottage – rubbings using pastel (blue) and markel stick (turquoise)
1.30 – 1.30.1 & 1.30.2
1.30.3, 1.30.4, 1.30.5
1.30.6, 1.30.7, 1.30.8
Sgraffito – top material scraped back using wooden chop stick
1.40.1 Turquoise markel stick over blue crayon – poor result
1.40.2 Turquoise markel stick over yellow crayon – poor result
1.40.3 Turquoise acrylic paint over blue crayon – good result
I built up several layers of crayon as a base layer and then added the acrylic but had to work quickly to remove before it dried. Next time I will make it thicker.
Discharge method – different inks and when dry using bleach to make marks
1.60.1 Black Parker Quink ink 1.60.2. Black Stephens drawing ink 1.60.3 Walnut ink crystals
1.60.4 Black Winsor & Newton ink
Two inks were successful but two were not. I understand that some inks produce different colours when discharged but unfortunately I have not got them. This would have been interesting and effective.
1.70.1 threads trapped between acetate
1.70.2 threads trapped in plastic wallet
1.70.3 threads trapped in clingwrap
1.70.4 emulsion paint applied to bubble wrap – some of bubbles burst to show low relief.
I am pleased I have done some more work on this chapter. Some of the tasks have worked well but some have not so I can concentrate on the successful techniques and materials.
