valentines day thermofax + foil special

January 30, 2015

I’ve spent the past few days blissfully playing with photoshop and some copyright free images from an early-twentieth-century German portfolio of forms from nature. I digitally flip, erase, copy, move, and generally mess around until I see something that simply delights the eye. I hope it delights your eye too!

In this piece I collaged watercolor paper with old sheet music, painted on a layer of gesso and acrylic something or other – I don’t remember. These sheets have been sitting around for too long. The first screen was with transparent red ProFab textile paint. The second layer was foil adhesive then foil. It was sort of a hot mess to print on the textured surface and I’m not sure if I was a mess with my foil adhesive or if the foil reacted differently from the way it behaves on fabric and stuck to the paint on paper. Live and learn. Or I should say PLAY and learn.
