The Zinnia towels are off the loom, tagged and ready for sale.
The market bag is done.
And when I put them together they look like this, all ready for Olivia's (my great-granddaughter) 4th birthday next week.
I even made a birthday card for her from a monotype print that I wasn't very pleased with.
And speaking of printmaking, last night was the fourth class in a five-class series called Introduction to Printmaking. We focused on linoleum cuts using Gomubond, a material softer and more malleable than linoleum. Speedball makes just three gouges 1-3 so I carved each bird with a different tip. The thinnest is on the left and #3 is in the middle. We only had 2 1/2 hours last night so I need to go in to the studio some afternoon to finish this up before our last class next Thursday.
Of the three we've completed, my favorite technique is collograph, and while I did like the lino cuts, I didn't enjoy dry point etching much at all.
