Next up-tissue paper ,black crayon rubbing torn and stuck,black crayon diagonal lines,black acrylic with inceasing amounts of water,edge of card printed.
Next to top-Black ground silver pen,flat brush acrylic paint,card tube used as print block,white tissue torn and stuck.
Top-candle rubbed then wash applied with addition black paper and crayon,wash applied salt sprinkled over,cling film used to print,
black,white paperand newsprint used to collage tone.This page I used some left over procion dye as the wash.I mixed blue and brown to see if I could find a near black equivalent for the fabric samples further along in the module.It shows navy but on fabric is more sludgy .

These look really attractive. I must get my 6th form to have a go at these. They have been working in ink, bleach, charcoal and pastel etc doing life studies. Something tlike this would really help them.
