My Obsessive Behavior




Last year a friend of mine sent me a link to some fingerprints done in silver. She knew that I had done some with the fingerprints of little children for young moms in fine silver. The problem was that her daughter lost her life in a tragic car accident a few years ago. I knew there had to be a way to do this from a fingerprint on paper. I read about it - too hard. I asked other artists about it - Blah blah blah - fast forward to me buying an imagemaker, then realizing my printer wouldn't print black enough... then buying another printer - this one does. Yesterday I got it to all come together. That's my fingerprint (don't tell James Bond that it's so readily accessible - he'll be all over that) and my new word "uniquity" done in copper. I also experimented with some new LOS...love it! It's called XL Gel in case you too are looking for an easier to use LOS with a longer shelf life... I also had to set up a new work space:

Dangerous? Who Cares! There is so much potential here for etching unique designs in metal, I can hardly sit still my mind is spinning so fast!!

(Confession - that's a bunch of canvas bags and onesies under the table waiting for me to get all silk-screen obsessive on... my obsessions don't always last very long...)
