Halfway through!

Day fifty and I am enjoying the process. In the studio every day and still coming up with more ideas to texture metal which is funny because I thought I would run out of ideas to fill 100 days! Wish we could put up more than one picture because I would like to show the objects I used to make the textures not just the finished piece.
Day 41- nylon window screen; Day 42- perforated paper, one-time use, next time would press harder to make deeper impression; Day 43- metal window screen; Day 44- Brass rings I used in Cuttlebug machine, didn’t do any better in rolling mill, didn’t get the inner lines; Day 45- brass texture plate,like this design but won’t use patina next time, dulls the design; Day 46- canvas, one time use; Day 47- damask cloth, one time use, doesn’t get all the pattern; Day 48- fabric placemat, doesn’t get all the pattern, one time use. Won’t use fabric other than canvas and book cloth at this point; Day 49- plastic placemat, one time use, hardly left an impression; Day 50- plastic dog dish mat with swirly design, very soft and thick, left no impression. Apparently, soft plastic will not leave an impression like the harder plastic in my Cuttlebug folders.

    Loving the textures you’re getting, Charon! Especially enjoy the first three in this grouping — am biased towards grid patterns. You’re experimentation is inspiring.
