Last week I was reading Seth Apter’s blog The Altered Page and he had this wonderful idea of re-posting one of your favorite posts from the past. So for my first venture into a collaborative project of this kind, here is a video tutorial that was previously shown on my old blog and never quite made in onto here, until now…
How to Create Your Own Backgrounds using Dye Based Inks
This one of the first films I made and I have hopefully improved on the lighting these days. Here is a better view of the example show demonstrated in the film;
Here are some other background papers I’ve been making;
The stamps were by Katzel Kraft and all the inks used were Ranger’s Adirondack dye based inks. Applied as shown in the film.
To see the work of others who are taking part in this collaboration, please visit Seth Apter’s blog; The Altered Page.
Thanks for this oportunity to join in with this project Seth, it has given me the nudge I needed to get this post on to this WordPress blog.
Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon
