Jean Grastorf Workshop 4


(Couldn't get this one uploaded correctly either.)
This is a half sheet - should be turned counter-clockwise for correct viewing. While everyone's poured paintings were in the process of drying, Jean showed us a new technique. We used a special clear wash-out tape to cover a half sheet. Then we used a quilter's rotary cutter to cut out shapes. We did the darkest shapes first, which made me have to think a little backwards. I had a little bit of trouble with the rotary cutter, and switched to a razor blade for the circle and the rectangles. I added some stamping at the end.

Using the washout tape was fun. I like the addition of your stamped areas. Jean's class was so much fun. I can't wait until we try pouring again.
