I'm fine tuning a few pieces in my series:
trying to figure out what the most elegant choices are,
how to proceed with colors,
andtrying to decide when to stop;
when enough is enough!
The above is a detail shot of a piece of paper lamination on silk crepe de chine
that I have been experimenting with.
I showed you part of it here,
and today I added the solid ring on the left.
I used a wax crayon to color a portion of the newspaper I was laminating,
and I used a colored pencil on the rest of the paper.
If you look carefully, you can see a hint of red in the center of the circle -
that is the wax which remained in the silk!
Below that line is where I used the colored pencil -
no reddish shadow!
So, I learned not to use wax crayons to color my newsprint!
I do love how the red shows through in the cracks
on the previously laminated portion.
Here's a shot of my practice piece:
I love how the red ring comes and goes throughout the piece.
The grayish portion of the ring on the left was
not colored, just plain newsprint.
I love this process!
