Exercise 2 – Polyfilla block

Exercise 1 Polyfilla block

A piece of card was covered with polyfilla and patterns were drawn into it. This was allowed to dry and covered with ink and prints were taken.

These prints were unsuccessful because the print block had insufficient ink on it, leaving only a faint trace.

Some of the prints reminded me of delft tiles, possibly due to the blue colour tile configuration. This is something, I would like to try again, but using a more defined pattern.

The sugar paper was messy and lacked body, whilst the hand-made paper was more of a success, due to the surface which was uneven and absorbed the paint well, lifting the paper in areas.

Overall I was pleased with the prints and surprised at the diversity, with different papers and colours.
