Collagraph made from funky foam using an image of a skull.
I have printed the image on to this lovely red scarf.
I have one week left of the two week rotation. Phew! where does the time go??? The topic for this rotation is The Body and the sub heading is under the skin. This can be interpreted any way you like. I decided to go for what lies directly under the skin. I have been doing lots and lots of experiments using all kinds of mediums and techniques with images of under the skin. In this experiment I have made a collagraph by tracing an image of a skull on to funky foam. I then cut the shape out and with a Biro added detail by drawing into the funky foam. I glued the foam to a piece of cardboard and rolled some ink over the top. First I printed the image on some paper. I really liked the effect so I tried it on calico and some white cotton fabric. The results where fantastic. I then saw this cheap scarf on my way home through town and I wondered if I could print the skull image onto it. I think it has turned out really well. Alas I am all skulled out now and I have gone back to working with the image of under the skin.
