Mark Making Tools and Artist Reference – Using Found Objects
My first mark making tool is a leaf. I have always been intrigued with leaves due to the different forms that it comes with and the textures of the veins can be interesting too. ==> Leaf
Secondly, I used loose thread as my mark making tool. I was inspired by Jackson Pollock’s Read more →
CHINESE INK & A BRUSH
After our second class I researched on mark making and found some quite interesting styles and ideas.
I took out my Chinese ink and a brunch of dried and old brushes and started painting on my paper.
I didn’t have a clear idea of the finished product. I just painted different angles, styles Read more →
She has a very interesting monoprint style that I really like. She uses old boxes, opens them and monoprints them. The monoprints she creates reminds me of buildings or machines.
I followed her style and started playing with the ink I use (Chinese ink or acrylic paint), the amount of paint I use and the area Read more →
For the first week of class we were asked to create our mark making tool.
I was quite confused. What is a mark making tool?
I started collecting random stuff from the kitchen. Mushrooms, broccoli, a fruit net, dried prunes, chilli and some vegetables. (HAHA)
I dipped them in Chinese ink and started stamping Read more →
The pain of expectation of vs reality strikes closer to our hearts as visual artists.

So I came across this very cool thing online, and it was done by Charlotte X.C Sullivan. It is called bubble printing.
Being a #Gobigorgohome kind of gurl, I decided to give it a try.

Decalcomania comes from the French word dècalcomanie. Which derives from the French word decalquer, which means to transfer or copy.
It is highly used by surrealists artists that use the technique to achieve different patterns solely due to the process of chance. It is first created by putting ink or paint on a surface such as paper, and then another paper is placed Read more →
Olla! Here is an update on how I have managed to derived a few of my lines from a combination of trial and errors which includes mono printing, decalcomania (my own method) and also some hand drawn ones as well!
To my surprise upon doing one of my mono prints, was that after scanning it looked like rubbish to me. I Read more →
The best part of this project that that we are able to explore different techniques and methods.
It all started with this. a line of long folded triangles pasted together. Initially, I wanted to make it as a form of 3D texture art. However, I was not convinced with this end result.
So I consulted Ms Ina who suggested me to scan Read more →
To kickstart our project, we were told to try out monoprints. Monoprinting is pressing an inked plate onto a variety of inks, tools, and items to create different types of prints. The beauty of monoprint is that one can achieve a huge variety of prints by experimenting with different methods, and that no print will ever look similar.
Here is a video example Read more →
