Pet Portrait Printmaking

Printmaking with Squares, Circles and Triangles. Sound familiar?

A dabber is a thin piece of mat board dipped into the glue and dabbed onto the cardboard shape then stuck to the 8X10 piece of mat board.

That is someone’s pet portrait made from; Squares, Circles and Triangles.

Inking the plate. That is a well designed pet portrait which is now being inked with acrylic paint. The roller is called a brayer and the inking plate for today was a cookie sheet. The bright pattern of poinsettia are from the plastic table-cloth, which is a great idea when you’re working with several children.

Ah! the print has been made. Peeling the paper from the art design is like magic.

Back to the beginning.  Squares, Circles and Triangles sorted into boxes.


About artist and illustrator

I'm a textile artist, resourceful and excited about making things. Dog walks with my pooch "Charlie" is inspiring and an opportunity to develop ideas from nature and people whom we meet on our strolls. There is a story behind my art making, it's in the series, I don't make just one but many from the same idea, but! not one will look like the other, each piece of art is "one-of-a-kind".
