Texture and materials


Exercise 10 in "Finding your own visual language" the book I reviewed in December on the FIRE blog is all about "rubbings". I have done quite a few experiments with texture plates that I bought from Blicks. They are cheap and come in many varieties (scroll down to photos on the page here). I used them as "rubbing" plates or collographs. These plates can also be used as a stamp with either acrylic or fabric paints when the paint is applied to the texture plates with a loaded brayer. The design can also be made on fabric when the fabric is laid on top of the texture plate then the brayer rolled over the fabric
