So! There have been a few changes lately to my art room lately.. The addition of a frankenstein of a computer made from scraps, parts from our old computers and a few new components.. The latest of all being the nice shiney new logitech wireless mouse and kb combo.. Which as you can tell makes blogging a little more fluid and art related… I did mention I have a lovely man who keeps my art and tech whims well sated.
Now that that is out of the way I wanted to show you some of the items I have been working on, these pictures are better than they have been lately due to the fact that I have gone back to using my trusty little Kodak point and shoot instead of my phone.. I am in the beginning of making the second issue of my Ninox zine.
Given that I wanted to try and get it done and out before Halloween and I found out how time consuming it can be to do the different parts I wanted to get on the path as soon as I could manage.The last 2 copies of issue one are getting mailed out this week I am pretty happy with the whole thing. I just wish I had a better scope of project planning and managing my time and work and content. If you have any tips I would love to hear them!
I have gone back to my doll making recently as well as a few other random bits thrown in there. The process and materials that you can use in doll making are so vast and it really is dependent on what you want to achieve.. Currently I am experimenting with a variety of surface treatments, gesso, needle sculpting, and now paper mache.. I cant tell you how great the paper mache is working out. Currently I am still working on the base of my first one but the hardness of the face is getting more to where I want it to be. I am using pva glue and old sewing patterns on a calico body.
I will post more pictures when I get more of it done. For now, that’s all.. 😀
