Today's post shows more of my art made with my new four-part release, Hot Air Balloons and Masks. This new release comes in two sheets -- one 6" x 6" sheet and one mini-sheet measuring 4" x 4".
Although these two sheets come in two sizes, the stencils and masks are identical in design, as shown here --
|Above: the stencil is on the left. The mask is on the right.|
Note: A mask "masks" -- that is, hides -- everything that you place under it. The function of a stencil, on the other hand, is to give you an imprint of an image that can contain more details than a mask can. In this case, the image is a hot air balloon with three vertical stripes.
Each of today's pieces was created on papers that had been prepared in advance with a variety of methods, all explained below.
|Above: This background was created on Yupo, a thin synthetic material with a slippery surface. I used this sheet of Yupo to make a monoprint with white, blue and lavender watercolors.|
|Above: This background was created with a large rubber stamp that I had carved, imitating a design I had seen online; the original design was created by Sherrill Kahn.|
|Above: This background was made with spatter paint and my 6" x 6" stencil Ornamental Iron Curls.|
|Above: This background was made with my 6" x 6" stencil Webbed Medallion.|
|Above: This background was likewise created on Yupo, a thin synthetic material with a slippery surface. I used this sheet of Yupo to make a monoprint with blue watercolors.|
