For the assignment 4- hybrid techniques, we freely can decide what we want to make. But, we have to combine both traditional and machine print.
So I decided to make stamps.
This is the design that I want to trace. I got it from google.
Then, I used the spray to covered the stamp. But it did not work properly. So I covered it again with shellac.
I also made some trial for the laser cut. I made different scale of the stamp.
I covered the MDF with shellac to give more strength. So when I washed the stamp, the water did not go into.I made a mould and covered it with vaseline so the latex doesn’t stay to the mould.Because the latex stretch when it is drying, I have to made some trial to make a nice one.Some of them stretch too much and pull the eyes and eyebrow apart.I poured latex into the moulds.
I stamp the pattern to fabric before I made the pencil case.
