Fiona's April Letters

Here are my four for the past month. The experimentation continues and there have been LOTS of learnings!

'N' is etched aluminium. Even after leaving it in the acid bath overnight at 1:1 ratio only the faintest surface metal was removed.

'O' I used freezer paper for a stencil and used the negative space to create the letter - done with gold paint on rusted fabric

'P' I bled ink along the bottom edge of the paper, drew the letter with ink; then adhered metal foil to squares of double sided tape. Thanks Noela!

'Q' I experimented with a Speedy-Cut carving block and carved out the letter, rolled ink onto the block and ended up usingthe block like a stamp. Not the most elegant of letters sorry.

J'aime beaucoup le graphisme et les couleurs du P.
Ecrire sur le métal n'a pas du être facile ?

I love the graphics and colors of P.
Write on the metal has not been easy?
