I am going to share a bit more of what I have done with the PearlEx powder today, then will move on tomorrow to something else.
Here is what happened on some archival tissue paper I used under the rice paper I was working on. I often fold a sheet of this tissue to place under any absorb-able papers, because I never know what will happen with the ink. I have also used watercolor paper to do something similar.
And, as you can see, I also used this ink wet tissue paper to mop up some of the excess powder.
Now, this is an image you saw yesterday, but I have done something with it...so I wanted to show you some basic steps:
And this is a part of one of the other images you saw in yesterday's post. Do you recognize it? I left a tad of yellow so you could see...
So I took these two and wove them together to get:
One of the things about these weavings is how they change the entire piece. This looks so different from either of the two pieces from which it was made. You can see each part, if you look closely. But the composition makes it appear very different. Do you agree with me weaving this paper makes it very different? Can you imagine some of these with a different weave than the basic straight over-under weave? This is not going to be my main work, but it is a technique which interests me and also is a way I can use some of these papers which are created in the studio...and I am not always using those oh, so expensive canvases all the time! :)
So yesterday was very busy for me, so I was not able to get to a lot in the studio, but this part basically came together for me. I think this one is positive for mounting.
I have heard rumblings that a lot of you are keeping busy with your art and your gardens on these beautiful spring days. While I love the garden, I am not a good gardener. I adore seeing all of your garden work, though...it is very inspirational. And thank you so much for taking the time to post comments here.
