Today I decided what I want to do as the theme for my piece in Bernadette’s Travelling Book.
I’m going to focus on more lovely kitchen items, carrying on from the jugs in Clare’s book, so I gathered up six of my favourite wooden spoons:
Disclaimer: not all wooden spoons are spoons!
I did a first drawing, folding the page for symmetry where they are symmetrical, then inking the best lines:
I retraced these using the light box for a good pencil line…
…and then traced and overdrew them on the paper side of some self adhesive funky foam:
They are now ready to cut and adhere to foam board, prime with gesso, then they’re ready for a good Gelliping session.
It was very relaxing, listening to Sigur Rós and retracing these lovely smooth lines.
