COLLAGRAPH AND ENAMEL EXPERIMENTS

My day out on Saturday must have done me the world of good as I have spent the last 2 days in
the shed finishing off prints and playing with enamel. These are the Eider ducks I started at Art in Action.

I have added strings and a label to the rooks.

I have completed this raven and I am calling it The Bargain.

This is a proof of Marley that creased because I had the paper to wet, so I thought I would experiment with cutting out a background. It certainly sorts out the crease!

I spent today making these little sculptures.

Etched copper, enamel and screen printed transfers My riveting is a bit out of practice, but I am pleased with the ease of firing in my new kiln.


I might take a day off tomorrow or do some drawing?

Sue, I am awed by your brilliance! Marley looks happy with himself. It's all beautiful!

Sue, I love the cut paper background to Marley - I've been doing a lot of that recently, including cutting in and around some intaglio prints but nothing as elegant as your wild flowers! It looks wonderful. Sara x
