Wire words

Well have had a wonderful afternoon, up to my ears in black ink !  I finally cleared the press off and did some experimental printing of some of the wire things. The birdcage printed OK apart from the top knot of wire which was too thick and rucked the paper. That’s been remedied.  I shall cut some bird silhouettes out of ephemera or monotypes to chine colle underneath when I print.

I made some wire words out of some of the long pieces of rusty wire, inked up with scrim.   Bit messy –

Wireword prints

 but isnt everything that’s fun ?

 The image on the left shows the print with some of the wirewords alongside. So easy – you just flip the words over to ink them up.
