After seeing what Chris (sorry hasn't got a blog 'yet') created using various types of papers, tissue, deli, waxed etc I needed to have a play too. I played with various thicknesses of tissue paper, some sort of wax paper and Reynolds freezer paper. I experimented with various makes of paints, Golden high flow, PA Fresco, Liquitex heavy body, Basics and Pebeo applied with scrapers, brayers and cut n dry foam and numerous stencils.
I decided to use some of them to create some mail art. As you can see from the front of the envies, I added various stamped images using black archival. I had already started to address them as yes, I actually posted them out to see if they would be robust enough to withstand the RM postal system, but then realised that was a bad idea as I had to cover the address so I quickly grabbed a photo before I put any more on!!!
And the backs. I used tissue tape to stick them down as hopefully it won't rip the envelopes when opened.
I hope the people that I sent them too liked them and more importantly, received them in one piece.
Every one has received their envies and they all arrived in tact - yay for RM xxx
