Day 76

Last night, a friend lent me some of her lovely wooden printing blocks. I’m looking to purchase some at the Fashion, Embroidery and Stitch show at the weekend, so this is a good opportunity to work out which ones I like.

Unfortunately, I left the interior light on in the car last night, so the battery was flat when I started it this morning. I called the AA out, and thought I’d try the stamps while I was waiting. Sadly standing around in your work frock is not the best time to get out the paint, so I tried some rubbings instead, adding colour to existing sketchbook pages.

I’m really pleased with the results, some lovely textured impressions. Here are some of my favourites:

This is lots of layers, neocolour 1 in white, then two colours of dye, metallic paint, and finally a neocolour rubbing on top:

A lovely border stamp in blue:

Great green swirls, working well with this rubbing from an Indian metal stamp of a dancer:

These are the stamps that I liked best, at least for rubbings:

More lovely rubbings. Sorry for the long post, WordPress has removed the ‘cut’ button from the app!
