Hello!! A real written post. I hope you have been enjoying the videos I am posting here - they are such an efficient way of sharing information and ideas etc with you. I don't seem to get an option to say anything when I post them - so sorry if they they arrive somewhat abruptly!
I also wanted to apologise for not answering your comments for the last few weeks. Somehow I had set my comments setting to a moderator setting - and I didn't see any of them - doh! I should be let loose with technology really. I have now found them and replied - and will try and look harder next time.
I thought you might like to see some stills of the sealife printing from the videos:
One of the plainer (not overdyed) ones - and then I played with a couple of different digital mounts:
Black prints then overdyed - and again a bit of playing:
Hopefully these give you an idea of how even just one simple print could be tweaked and mounted to make a beautiful piece of work to display
And a few more - overdyed and some more plain ones:
These last two are done with the magic stamp heat moldable foam block - giving negative images
As I have enjoyed block rpinitng so much, I decided to add some into the range of products I sell in my online shop - www.hilarybshop.co.uk -
I asked Jamie from Colouricious to get me some made by her craftsmen in India as I know this is a good source where fair profits go to the makers and make a huge difference to their lives. She picked them up for me on a recent trip and I will make a video using them. But I couldn't resist a quick first play - so here's some images of that!
hopefully you can follow through printing and then overprinting on these. I used Jacquard textile paints for a change with these so I could try out layering translucent colours - loved the results and will show you more on the next video. I cant do spellos on videos either!! Bye for now - Hilary xx
