For 2D class, we played around with black ink, rubber paint rollers and a bunch of mark making tools that we brought from home.
TOOLS USED: AA Battery, mini binder clip, big binder clip, spoons, and a bunch of stuff borrowed from classmates
We also started on lino! (There’s nothing on that picture yet). Personally I don’t enjoy using lino.
The flat bottom of the battery creates a pretty rose-like mark on the paper! I tried putting them in rows on the roller’s surface so it’ll have a repetitive pattern.
And the finished products!
I achieved this zig zag dotted effect by placing ink on the roller’s surface using a spoon.
As for this one, I tried to mimick Jackson Pollock’s work by using a palette knife and lots of black ink.
I REALLY LIKE THIS ONE! I used the bottom tip of a mini binder clip and smeared ink on the roller’s surface. Reminds me of how cafe plate their sauces with their food.
I placed ink on the roller’s surface using the whole bottom of the mini binder clip to get this double dotted zig zag.
Then I turned to my left and saw a very happy Sammi and Vanessa working on their linos!!
I quite enjoyed this class. I’ve never worked with a rubber paint roller and didn’t know what a lino was until then! Even though my mark making tools looked “basic”, they did bring out some really lovely patterns.
