Using my embroidery as inspiration I came up with the idea of creating simple earrings by photographing embroidery samples from my current project, then using the uv printer to print the image onto acrylic plastic and using the lazer cutter to cut out scale like pieces!
I took up an opportunity to take part in a glass making course, something that took my mind off of all the deadline work due, yet still held that creative element which helps me unwind. The process was simple so it was a relaxing activity being able to piece together the glass frit and confetti, experimenting with colour, texture and scale. While i enjoyed this it was great being able to learn a new skill! I’ve documented a detailed process in my technical file.
Does a drawing change once you discover the story behind the object or visual you are drawing from? for example; does a drawing become softer or more subtle once you discover there is a sensitive subject associated with the object. I’ve discovered that i change the medium im using depending on the subject matter and the brush strokes or marks i use to form the drawing, possible future project concept to explore?
By trapping wet paint in between two clear pieces of plastic e.g plastic wallet, or clear wrapping paper you can achieve a marbled, stained glass effect. By holding it up to the light the details become highlighted and colours appear brighter!
