Oxides Play

So this morning I only had a couple of hours to play as due to going out yesterday, I had to go food shopping which is a pain on a Sunday as they don't open until 10am. So when I'd got back, I cracked open the nine oxides and had a play.

I didn't really have anything in mind, I just wanted to try them on different surfaces, differing amounts of water and different colour combos, so this is what I ended up with.

I decided to cut this piece in half and also have a play with my new to me Seth Apter stamp sets, I got two sets of boarders and the rotary set. I'm hoping to find a suitable focal image for the one on the left.

I also had a play with my new to me Andy Skinner stamp sets too. I used coloured stazon as I wanted to know how it would stand up on the oxides background.

I just simply stamped with black stazon on this one.

Was curious to know how the black stazon would work against the walnut stain oxide. 

And finally I decided to stamp with the oxides and I have to say, I'm very impressed with how they stamp.

Unfortunately it's a bit dull outside today, ie no sun, so the photos look slightly darker than the actual pieces do in real life.

Lovely results from your first play Sam. That's about as far as I got playing at Hazel's but didn't try different inks on top yet.
