......Continuing Fiber Junkie's fun with alcohol ink....Have I ever mentioned how very creative the Fiber Junkie members are? Of course I have......no matter what subject we plan to focus on....we do have a tendency to go 'off the grid' with free flowing ideas.
Denny always gets us moving in new directions. I expect shaving cream printing may not be new to some of you.....but it's the first time I ever tried it. Straight out of the can....shaving cream was spread onto a board covered with a protective coating.
A few drops of ink were applied...Run through with a finger to achieve a marbled design.....fabric added and patted into the foam.
......ta da.......Val often works with paper. She brought a large piece that had been rusted and used some Caran D'Ache pencils to add more color. Spritzing with water from time to time to helped blend the colors.
Denny used inks to color the background of a screen printed house scene.Kate dropped ink blotches onto fabric that had been printed with red flowers, then watching it spread and get absorbed.
So she added more color by spraying the ink.
Here's another piece of Kate's fabric that was colored with ink.....
.....and printed with Denny's shaving cream/ink solution.
Whether or not any of our experiments make it into a finished piece....who knows or cares. We don't need excuses or a reason to play!!!
