It’s that time when the shift happens and the gloriously hot summer fades away into cool mornings. Maybe it is all the smoke in the air making me think people have lighted their woodstoves already, or the fact my children’s school year is in full swing, or maybe it is the slow down in henna at the market. Whatever it is, all is not lost, for I spend year round coming up with artsy schemes which I try to bring to life in the fall and winter months. I spent yesterday tub dying with 4 colors from the Pantone Fall 2012 color report. From Pantone: Fall 2012 is The Magic of Color. I could use a little daily magic and imagine you could also.
I really like these colors and have some inks in great contrasting tones also from the color palette. I know eventually I will be using colors of my particular choice, but have realized through the years that appealing to many people is not necessarily a bad thing. If people are looking to add some Olympian Blue to their wardrobe, I’m ready.
I’m hoping to finish one silkscreen today, however last week I burned and then wiped clean one silkscreen 4 times! Every time I found something wrong with it, I cleaned the emulsion off and started completely over. I spent 2 days being completely disgusted with myself, no worries, it’s how I grow. Let’s hope today goes better, I make myself happy and have a nice clear and precise screen to work with, because I really want to play with my new inks!
