Monday morning feeling. a bit rusty!!
ACAD fibre dept. has a wonderful collection of rusty bits and they are about 10 times the size of rusty bits that I have collected and keep at home. I think I want to go even bigger with this. As follow up today I have left some bigger sheets to rust dye but even ACAD's rusting metal is not big enough for these pieces... so I will have to look elsewhere, Tara did say there are some bits outside the building...
Anyway the sun bleaching of my papers (I did a trial over the weekend) were not very encouraging. I mean they bleached too much. Perhaps I need to go for an over-dye of rust on my KMnO4 papers like the one at the bottom (above). I really like this piece.
It was a short day for me at ACAD as I had an appointment elsewhere at 12:30, but on the way to my appointment I checked out Beadles for the 'nodes' for my latest wormy... they had about 6 beads in the colour I need and I need about 30! I bought samples of two other colours and I hope I feel satisfied with these when I have applied them.... Might have to visit Suzie-Q in Inglewood to see if they have my first choice of beads.. or something more similar. Or maybe Michael's on the way home tomorrow, though I don't hold out much hope for Mike's.
