Surface Texture,

Inspirational bark

Photos July 2011 Patricia Chauncey

Some of the new components. Using the sun, the torch and the blaster.
Excited and productive.

Hand painting, stamping, silk screen, burning and pyrography. Applying ground glass, beads, glitter, metallic paints, graphte powder, sand and post industrial felts. Recycled plastics are also involved.

Results are dimensional and very textured.

Can never seem to use one technique but would probably be a good idea to quiet the mind.

Stitching starts tonight. Should throw a few sparks and spit a few needles.
