the second one is indeed a portafilter. it is used to brew espresso. I did an entire series of them that i will post later. I used acrylic for the first one. The second one is graphite. The third is mixed media. I used film stips, watercolor, pen, an old pattern, and a butterfly wing i found on the sidewalk. Thanks for the feedback!!!!
hello craftsters! im currently teaching myself to crochet, but ive come along a little bump in the road. or chain. . . hehe. ok. anyway. when making the turning chains, for example in a double crochet stitch, it tells me to make 3 turning chains before inserting my hook into the next chain stitch. Do i do this only at the begining of a row, or every time before i go to make the stitch? thanks!
im really liking that. what did you use to attach the hands and what are they made of? i was making a piece similar to this for my art class but stopped because i had life size plaster cast arms and no clue how i was going to get them to stick to my canvas!
I took a mixed media class for high school students at Moore College of Art and Design last summer. I dont know how old the kids you want to do a daycamp for are, but most of the projects we did could probably work with most ages. We did all sorts of print making and still lifes in diffrent medias, but a few projects that stuck out in particular were: Gesso landscapes: We used gesso and mixed in earthy materials, like grass, sand, and dirt and applied them directly to a strong paper to make a textured landscape. Newspaper landscapes: Using the diffrent values that newspaper creates (tiny lettering, big lettering, spacing, job opportunities, color ads, etc.) we were able to create landscapes using shapes, clippings, and ink.
