Been a big job, class is a little to large fourteen yr 7 and a few yr 8's. Was going to do with another staff member but this change so decided to go ahead. DESIGN IN NATURE-using bugs. I created the stensils from students primary drawings. while screen printing with a few set the rest loose with jutta and silk.......
14 screens well almost -had to double a few up
Jutta waitng for colour
storing left over bits for other projects
first tea towel (one jutta bug)
Planning to do leaves , circles or strips on screens for colour....a little choise.
This has given me a challange, just today I came in from work ready to bin it....and took one last shot now feeling happy, break through! done what I wanted to achieve just white to fill in.
This has been a rather large experiment, wanted to work with chalk paint, did not want to buy board so thought I would upcycle a old canvas. This piece has to be left as wieght of chalk paint causing problems... when canvas is flate frame pushes into canvas surface. Ready to work on wood- formula in place will leave Kudu now and do more birds. PS BEEN LOOKING FOR TEA CHESTS OR RECLAIMED PLYBOARD ANY SUGGESTIONS WELCOME.
