LOL K ! Sorry to bother you with that moving out/in story, it's just that it is getting on my nerves because i can't concentrate on sketching, painting, etc. these times. Yes, i keep in touch, do you have a blog ? Thanks again for your friendship :)
Thanks again K :) I've not been very active yet, because i'm not at home these months, moving from one region to another, not having my art stuff at hands, and i should perhaps have waited before subscribing to the site ! I love the textures in your art, and your creativity seems to be without limit :) How lucky ! See you.
Hi K ! Thanks so much for being friend ! I'm quite new here and still discovering, i love the photos i've seen on your page :) I'm not a collage and assemblage specialist but it's really fun to share and maybe experiment all mixed-media possibilities. "See" you soon and thanks again !
Hi K To answer your question, I will try to put up some detail piks if I have them. What I use mostly as collage is my own drawings printed on unryushi (Japanese paper) through my home printer. Must have copy paper attached to one edge so it doesn't get all crunched up in the process. I then tear the unryushi and glue to canvas. Because it's translucent when glued it melds into the background, without looking like it's stuck on.
I am loving looking at your work while I type this! Will come back later . cheers, Kym
Hello K, thanks very much for your comment on my brasso little video. I am glad you like the word play..I think so many artists forget how to play and have fun and just do art for the fun of it like my kids do! just looking through your art some excellent inspirational pieces like all the assemblages especially.
Thank you for requesting a friendship! I do enjoy your work, and it appears that we have some common interests. I do hope that you have recovered from your bout with the flu! It appears that it's my turn!!!! Am anxious to start posting some of my work, but the universe conspires! I am hopeful that soon I will be able to do so!
So once i have my image printed onto transparency film, I take my Ezscreen silk screen which has been coated in light sensitive emulsion (These sheets come pre-coated so they are ready to use). Place it onto a black board, then place the transparency image on top (this part needs to be done in a dark room with no direct sunlight). I take it outside and expose it for 1 minute and 40 seconds (but time varies depending on time of day and strength of sunlight). After i have exposed the image i place it into a tub of water for around 5 - 8 minutes. Then i rinse the screen out under fast running water until the unexposed area (the black) washes away. I then expose the screen to the sun for a further 20mins to completely harden the light sensitive emulsion.
And this is the completed screen ready for printing. I simply use an old credit card to spread the ink over the screen making sure i do one complete full stroke across the screen (holding the credit card at a 45 degree angle). I immediately wash the screen out under fast flowing water and pat dry. I use fabric screen printing ink which washes out in water (which makes the process easy).
I love this product, their website is http://ezscreenprint.com/ (for full instructions and details on how to purchase this awesome product).
