UP IN FLAMES
We're going to let you play with fire this week! Channel your inner pyro and burn, singe, or scorch a project. Or, take the challenge and use it as a theme, it's your choice.
I played with my 'burnie' tool..... and a lighter ( for the latter i did stand at the kitchen sink as i wasnt sure how quickly this old veneer would burn!)
I used the rubber set LONELY BOY, from SMEARED INK, stamped using very pale grey( i just wanted to be able to see the image) onto oak veneer ( borrowed from my grandads shed.... he used to do marquetry) cut to atc size.
I then burned all the line detail in using my 'burnie tool' with a fine point attached.... then i tried to shade in some more detail using a small ball tip...... the one of Lonely boy...alone.... sounds strange hey?.... i painted around him with cream acrylic.... as i'd boobed a bit with some of the lines.......
....and i painted in all the whites of the eyes as the oak was to dark for eye-balls.
When i'd done with my little tool.... i stood at the sink and used the lighter to burn the edges.... this wood has to be nearly antique.... it burned so fast.... glad i was at the sink!......
It would be great if you could come and join in this week but be quick...times running out!.... and somewhere on your piece you must have a SMEARED INK IMAGE....either digi or rubber.... either will do.
I shall enter this set of atcs into the following challenges....
