Tonight I continued working on my collage from yesterday.
I used to different things to add some color to the wood, alcohol based ink as well as india ink. With both types I dripped the color on the top of a cotton swab and used that to dye the wood. Then I went through my paper collection and cut out some that felt right for the piece. I thought I was going to add paper to all the rays around the girl but it felt too crowded so left some blank, using the wood grain itself as the pattern.
I plan on using a gel medium to adhere the papers and once I have them down I’ll see what it needs next.
