INK MARKS: The following patterned papers were created using black Quink ink and a variety of tools as 'paint brushes' to make marks, including cotton buds to make dots and lines, scrunched up kitchen paper, edge of credit card, bottle top, end of kitchen roll tube, half the end of a cardboard tube, bubble wrap, corrogated card board, tip of credit card, and edge of corrogated cardboard. Marks were made by dragging, dabbing, dotting, swivelling and drawing.
Quink inked cartridge paper, cotton bud dipped in household bleach, then dabbed and dragged over paper.
'Painted' lines with cotton bud dipped in bleach, followed by dragging tip of bleach dipped credit card across inked cartridge paper. Really like the effect of this paper.
Bottom of kitchen roll dipped in bleach and stamped on black tissue paper.
MONOPRINTS: To create the following set of monoprints I used black Windsor and Newton Designers Gouache, spreading it on to a glass pane (a shelf from an old fridge!). I 'drew' the patterns using a variety of 'tools', including cotton buds, bubble wrap stamped down as well as scrunched up and dragged, edge of palette knife, corrogated cardboard, and edge of kitchen roll tube.
