I also try something new. I print one version using Acrylic Black Color and then apply watercolor on it. The first one is using water based ink and it is not suitable for watercolor wash, i.e., the black color will come out and make other colors dirty.
I like the color version as well. It is very pretty.
A new technique of printmaking using reductive method was taught in last week printmaking class. The reductive method prints something on a paper and then cut some away to make another printing on the same paper till you get the final result.
It requires a lot of planning to work on this method such as the colors, sequence of cutting needed and number of editions you want to produce.
In this work, I planned to print two pieces. I position them using tapes to align them properly during subsquent layers of printing. The gomuban, an easy to carve vinyl rubber plate is secured in the middle.
Once I printed the color I wanted, I cut away it and thus it will not be covered during the subsequent printing.
This is the third printing and last one, when the light colored green is cut away.
I found these lovely brass brooch frames in a jewelry supply store some time ago. I love the oval shape and the lace frame. It would be perfect to make some brooches with my paintings.
It is a long weekend because of Singapore National Day. The visitors have left and now I have more time. I made quite number of them using my paintings today. Each brooch is made with a print from my paintings and covered with thick layer of resin to give a beautiful sparkling glass look.
Size: 1-7/16" x 1-3/4"/35 x 45mm. The image measures 3/4" x 1"/19 x 25mm.
It would be a perfect item to add sparkle to any type of outfit.
Most of the time I was processing the orders these days for my work. My baby daughter is staying at home all day these days after she came back from hospital for a minor infection. I will only send her to school when she is fully recovered.
I have been very busy these days. My daughter caught flu and was hospitalized for two days. I guess maybe we have too many people in the house during summer vocation. It is very easy to pass around the germs.
Just made these pretty elegant rectangle glass pendant for a customer order. It is from Secrete Garden painting.
The pendant is mailed out in a pretty jewelry box so that you can give it as a gift.
