the beauty of this technique lies in the nature of the acrylic – you can adjust and modify the gel to suit your needs… whether using retarder to increase smoothness, mixing in acrylic pigment, or even mixing in other materials (i’ve seen everything from gold flake to sand mixed into the acrylic gel). I use Liquitex’s Gloss Heavy Gel Medium, but any clear acrylic medium works.

shibori girl

http://shiborigirl.wordpress.com/2007/01/18/new-shibori-photos/
I’ve uploaded a couple of new pics to the shibori pool on flickr. Still working on my still photo set up. Haven’t gotten it quite to my liking yet but it’s coming along. I hope to get a few questions answered at the upcoming photographers meetup beginning of the month.
I’m reading “Why We Buy, The Science of Shopping” by Paco Underhill. A really great book. Many of the things he talks about in the book, I have done when selling my work from simple intuition but he takes it to a whole new level. I will definitely be using more of these techniques as I move forward. I also finished listening (as I was sewing more postcards) to the CODA speech by Dennis Stevens entitled “Redifining Craft for the 21st Century”. There is some really good stuff in there. It’s a little wordy and heavy-handed so have a little patience- his ideas are pretty clear and it’s got me thinking. How about you?

onion prints

i soaked the onion skin in a bit of warm water to soften it and cut the shape. i wrapped some old silk on a spool and caught the heart shape in between the layers of the wrap. i used cotton string to wrap it. I have a brew of pomegranate, tea, oak leaves and now some avocado that has been cooked over the winter many times. i keep adding stuff to the pot. I heated the brew once again and dropped the bundle in and let it sit in the sun for a few days. that’s it. if i left it longer, the image would have been stronger but i was just doing a test of the method. onion skins mark silk very quickly. i remember reading that in the book.
