Block Printing!!!! AKA A new way to have fun!!
For this project I used block printing and block printing ink. It was so fun. So.. what is block printing? Block Printing is the process of carving into a piece of blue fabric like thick block. It is such a procedure to do a piece from block printing. First you have to draw your ideal project, then you grab tracing paper and trace the drawing onto the tracing paper. From there, you put the tracing paper on the block, and transform the sketch from the tracing paper onto the block by either going over it with a pencil or a coin. It is really ideal to use either a HB or a 2B drawing pencil for block printing. Then from there you start carving out the positive space, ( the areas which you do not want the paint to go on, so basically the parts that are not part of the drawing ). It sounds complicating but it really is not.
I really loved Block Printing, it was something new and definitely exciting!
Here is the project i've done, I've done several sketches to try them out before doing my final piece!
So seeing my piece, I carved out the white areas, which I do not want paint to go on. It took a long time, but looking at my pieces right now, it was worth it.
I called it abstract thoughts because as you can see in my Final Piece, you have two women. Pink representing the innocent inside of the girl, and the navy blue one representing how she rubs off on the people whom she meets. She seems really strong and powerful, since the color symbolises stability, the girl seems to be stable with everything, but in reality she is just an innocent girl, since pink symbolises flowers, babies and love, she is actually an innocent soul.
The initial sketch is called Loneliness.
