Happy Wax on Wednesday to you, and a very Happy Thanksgiving if you are here in the US!
This week I am using some of my cyanotype prints that I enjoy certain areas of to create smaller collage works. We all have those prints that come out having some exciting parts but fall short of a perfect print. When printmaking, whether it is cyanotype, botanical printing , eco printing , gel printing ,etc . , I always save the ones that don't work out exactly as planned because there is usually areas of the print that are still really interesting . They may just work better cropped down to a smaller scale to focus on the exciting parts.
Supplies I used this week:
Each week I list the supplies I used in the video here on the blog for you so that you can see and easily find the items used for that week's technique .
If you purchase items from the links provided it sometimes generates a few cents in commission which goes right back in to creating videos for you on the youtube channel. It does not raise the cost for you in any way, and is the same link you would find on a regular amazon prime search . Thank you so much! Also , although the photos here can help you easily find the product . I also recommend that you look at your local art /hobby store to make sure you are getting the lowest price. Sometimes with weekly 40% off coupons basic items can be found at a better price.
