Yesterday’s Longmont 2nd Arts Friday was great, many old & new visitors came by to view and chat about my work.
During the event, I played with some specialty papers that I’ve been intrigued with, but didn’t know what to do with. I tried gluing them to sturdier watercolor paper and printing some stencils (in this case, stencils from Meet the Screamers) on the gilded portions.
On the first try, I used adhesive spray to hold the stencil in place, but that pulled away the gilded surface when the stencil was removed. I then tried with no adhesive, and it worked much better.
To the left is a recent mono print “The 7 Year Scream”, combining vintage cinema and politics.
